MSI DigiVox mini II

A DVB-T USB 2.0 device from MSI. (see Vendor site for a picture).

PLEASE NOTE:


The stick may partially work with USB 1.1, but I had trouble watching some of the channels until I installed and used an USB 2.0 PCI expansion card --Caius.

Status

Supported. See linux-dvb mailing list for more details. Works fine.

Components Used:

  • NXP/Philips 8275ac1 (tuner)
  • NXP/Philips TDA10046A (demodulator)
  • ULi M9206 (USB bridge)

Driver

  • dvb-usb-m920x

Install

  1. how to use (tested with ubuntu 7.04):
  2. tested applications:
    • vlc -> use channellist as playlist
    • kaffeine -> builtin channel scan
  3. if driver and firmware installed well dmesg or /var/log/messages should show something like this:

Jun 23 11:47:42 nbdsc kernel: [ 1025.488000] dvb-usb: MSI DIGI VOX mini II DVB-T USB2.0 successfully initialized and connected.

If the stick isn't connected into a USB 2.0 port, instead of:

Jun 23 11:47:42 nbdsc kernel: [ 1025.416000] dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer.

You will probably get something like this:

Jun 23 11:47:42 nbdsc kernel: [ 1025.416000] dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table count: 8).
