Driver Installation

By default on Ubuntu 8.04 or any 2.6.24 kernel the driver for the TV tuner is not supplied and must be installed separately. If you plug in the TV tuner without the driver installed only the IR sensor for the remote will be detected. dmesg output:

input: Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Gold as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.5/usb6/6-7/6-7:1.1/input/input7
input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Gold] on usb-0000:00:13.5-7

To install the driver you will need your kernel headers and mercurial installed, kernel headers and mercurial can be installed under Ubuntu by running :

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic mercurial linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential

"update", The af9015 is now supported under the v4l-dvb master driver (see here http://linuxtv.org/repo/ ).

To install the driver enter the following commands into a terminal:

1) hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
2) cd v4l-dvb/
3) make
4) sudo make install
5) cd /lib/firmware/
6) sudo wget http://www.otit.fi/~crope/v4l-dvb/af9015/af9015_firmware_cutter/firmware_files/4.95.0/dvb-usb-af9015.fw 

Your TV tuner's driver is installed now, to load the driver either run sudo modprobe dvb_usb_af9015 or reconnect you TV tuner. You can check that the driver is loaded correctly by running dmesg in a terminal, your out put should be similar to this:

Also if you run ls /dev/dvb/ in a terminal you should see a new dvb adapter.

Firmware Versions

The above instructions work with 4.65 firmware. With the 4.95 firmware channels will not lock. This can be fixed with a couple of minor code changes/text edits and recompiling the code. Instructions are here: http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Leadtek_WinFast_DTV2000DS

Remote

This dongle comes with the Y04G0051 remote. Newer versions of this remote don't work out of the box. While they are recognized when pressing a key it repeats until another key is pressed - which makes this remote unusable. There is a solution here: http://kuc.cz/egoz8c

open "/etc/modprobe.d/usbhid.conf" add "options usbhid quirks=0x0413:0x6029:0x04" run "sudo depmod -ae" run "sudo update-initramfs -u" restart

The faulty usbhid driver is now disabled. Next step is to add the remote via lirc as outline here: http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Leadtek_WinFast_DTV2000DS

This will enable your remote which you can test by running "irw"

To link the remote commands you still need to map them to mythtv commands. http://cafuego.net/2009/12/13/leadtek-y04g0051

Remote - alternative key binding

I learned how to this on XMBC site: [2]

You can use Y04G0051 without lirc, so purge lirc and install ir-keytable, next commands are for Ubuntu.

sudo aptitude purge lirc
sudo aptitude install ir-keytable

Then you neet to copy file rc6_mce which i uploaded, into /etc/rc_keymaps/ like so:

cd /etc/rc_keymaps/
wget http://ubuntuone.com/643KoO3QJdt1BgyllEomT2

You can change functions of any button open it with editor of your choice (nano, gedit, kate...):

sudo kate /etc/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce

You will probably want too cause Gnome doesnt support many buttons from our remote, list of all posible key-codes is here: [3]

Then, you just run this:

sudo /usr/bin/ir-keytable -p NEC,RC6 -w /etc/rc_keymaps/rc6_mce

And everything should work now.

Troubleshooting

  • Problem: You have followed the step's above but when you run ls /dev/dvb/ there is no new adapter and your dmesg output is similar to this:
usb 6-7: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 31
usb 6-7: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
input: Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Gold as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.5/usb6/6-7/6-7:1.1/input/input8
input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Gold] on usb-0000:00:13.5-7
