This might actually be the most common setup, as it is very easy to
build[1] with minimal soldering skills and has also been used by various
vendors (older models of the TechniSat SkyStar2 DVB-S budget card, to name
just one example; it is only slowly being replaced by alternative means,
as serial ports are becoming rare on newer systems.
