The difference is the state of the Linux support in kernel/firmware I
think.  I had a Technisat SkyStar 2 DVB-S card I picked up for 15 before my
current card and that worked just fine (again out of the box - no fiddling
with Fedora FC5/6.)  I switched to the S-1500 because I wanted the CI
interface.

And - on Timothy's point about not getting a lock with his Nova-S, I'm
running trunk as well and have no issues with locks on every channel.
