Giveaway Week 2023 – TBS7901 mini PCIe DVB-S2X/S2 module

The second prize of Giveaway Week 2023 is a TBS7901 mini PCIe DVB-S2X/S2 module designed to be connected to a PC or board with a mini PCIe socket in order to watch, record, or broadcast free-to-air video received from a satellite dish.

I received both M.2 and mPCIe DVB-S2X modules last August, but I haven’t had time to test any of those yet. So I’m keeping the M.2 module for my own testing once time permits and will be giving away the mini PCIe module to one of CNX Software readers.

The module comes with a coaxial antenna cable, as well as a TBS-7901PW power board and SATA power cable since DVB-S/S2/S2X satellite TV requires 13V and 18V DC as well which will be outputted won’t the power board using the 12V from a PSU.

You’ll probably need a Windows machine too since TBS provides Windows drivers for the TBS7901 as mentioned in the introduction post, and follow the instructions in the video below to get started with the hardware installation and software,

To enter the draw simply leave a comment with your country and whatever else you’d like to say (no links in the body of the comment). If the country is missing, I’ll consider the entry void. Other rules are as follows:

  • Only one entry per contest. I will filter out entries with the same IP and/or email address.
  • Contests are open for 48 hours starting at 10 am (Bangkok time) every day.
  • Comments will be closed after 48 hours. If comments are open, the contest is still going on.
  • Winners will be selected with random.org, and announced in the comments section of each giveaway.
  • I’ll contact the winner by email, and I’ll expect an answer within 24 hours, or I’ll pick another winner. Note that I may not be able to contact people who log in with Facebook, Twitter, or Google, so it’s better to use an email address to enter the draw.
  • Shipping
    • $11 for registered airmail small packet or ePacket for overseas shipping payable via PayPal within 48 hours once the contest (for a given product) is complete. If PayPal is not an option in your country, we can try to find another payment solution.
    • All prizes will be shipped at the same time once we get all the winners, so around November 15.
  • I’ll make sure we have 7 different winners, so if you have already won a device during this giveaway week, I’ll draw another person.

If you don’t end up winning the TBS7901 module, you can purchase one for $119.00 on the TBS store.

  1. Please consider that this manufacturer is very dangerous. I have had a lot of chance to save my house last summer, because of the TBS board who did literraly burn with big flames.
    And when I look at the fist picture, they didn’t learn noting because as we can see there is no fuse, nothing to protect what can happen with these low quality power chip who die shorting the power supply.
    PLEASE DO NETHER USE THESE MODULE OF THIS MANUFACTURE WITHOUT ADDING A FUSE !
    Si tu comptes l’offrir Jean Luc, dégage toutes responsabilités, et si tu as un contact chez le fabriquant, dis leur de rajouter un put*** de fusible, et traite les de créta*** de ma part 😉

  2. From Belgium.
    Although we have a very extensive cable network in Belgium, playing with this thing can’t hurt.

  3. Interesting board, might be fun to make a little TV box out of it. United States, ND
