An ATSC PCI card from DViCO.

There are actually two versions of this card, and both are presently unsupported. However, there is a good chance that both can be made to work. Those wishing to enable support should inquire about doing so on the dvb mailing list.

Overview/Features

Upon physical inspection of the face of your card, you will see:

You should be able to determine the version of your card by either looking underneath the Fusion sticker on the tuner module (to confim the actual tuner used) or via the output of 'lspci' (with the -v or -vn switches).

See the following mailing list thread for some further detail in regards to this version: http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2006-May/010072.html

As an aside, although they differ in board design and layout, this version of the FusionHDTV II card shares the same functional components as the pcHDTV HD-2000 card.

Firmware

This card requires a firmware file (dvb-fe-or51211.fw) for the demodulator, which can be obtained from the LinuxTV downloads section. Alternatively, one can also obtain the firmware file by using the get_dvb_firmware perl script included with kernel sources:

# cd /[kernel source directory]/Documentation/dvb/
# perl get_dvb_firmware or51211

Either way, once the download is complete, place a copy of the firmware file in your /lib/firmware directory. (This directory may differ with some distros; consult your distro's documentation for the appropriate location).
