DVB-T2/T or DVB-C PCIe Twin Tuner card from DVBSky. Drivers in kernel 3.19.

Features

  • Dual/Twin Tuner input, Belling Lee Connector (Cable or Antenna)
  • PCIe x1
  • Low power
  • Si2168-A20 demodulator
  • Si2158-A20 tuner
  • Conexant CX23885 PCIe bridge

Driver and more

  • Kernel 3.19 contains the open-source driver. Use media_build to build it for the earlier kernels.
  • See DVBSky wiki page for closed source driver. Execute build_{x86|x64}_dvbc.sh for DVB-C driver!

Firmware

The open source driver requires firmware for both demod and tuner.

The easiest option is to download them from OpenELEC firmware collection [1]. Note that when downloading the firmware, you will need to click the Raw button to get the actual binary.

  • dvb-demod-si2168-a20-01.fw
  • dvb-tuner-si2158-a20-01.fw

Place the firmware files under /lib/firmware.
