    I was wondering if its possible to add support for the Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-S2 USB Stick.
    I can see on the Hauppauge homepage that its supported from Linux kernel 3.14 and luckily i can see in the technical details on my Uno 4K with DVB-C FBC tuner, that Linux kernel 3.14.28 is used in Black Hole.
    I would love being able to use my Uno 4K for both cable and satellite, since we have such a combination in my home.

    Forget about adding the support for the USB stick, i have given up on it.
    I tried hooking it up to my Windows computer to make that one an S2 receiver and it identified it as being an entirely different USB tuner:
    PCTV 461
    That is strange in it self, because it clearly looks completely different, plus it tells that its a NOVA on the USB tuner it self and box it came delivered in.

    So upon investigating that 461, this tuner reveals it self as being a dud driver wize, because Happauge UK has put to much trust in to developers of various OS to add the support them selves. Hauppauge has not released any downloadable drivers for it them selves.
    USB tuner thrown in the trash, so i will instead in the future look in to buying a Vu+, which comes with both a C and S2 tuner.
