This device, manufactured by Nokia, Philips and Sagem in huge numbers for the German Pay-TV provider Premiere, is a DVB-C or DVB-S receiver. It features a 10Mbit Ethernet interface and a nifty graphics display, on which you can display your Linkstation logs. The device is unique in that it runs a user upgradable version of Linux.

LinkStations are popular among DBox hackers, since they can be used to record received media streams from a DBox. See the Linux-based Tuxbox project wiki.tuxbox.org (German) for information about DBox hacking. This was once the main reason for people in Germany to buy a LinkStation.

NFS needs to be installed on the LS for this purpose. There are NFS speed test scripts you might find useful.
