This PCMCIA-card runs with a patch from this site.

For kernel 2.6.26 and newer you just need to download and copy the firmwares to /lib/firmware.



Getting firmware files

You need the developement version of the video4linux folder:

sudo apt-get install mercurial (if not yet installed)
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

Additionally two firmwares. Let's fetch the first one:

cd v4l-dvb/linux/Documentation/video4linux/
wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/xc5000/HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip
unzip -j HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip Driver85/hcw85bda.sys
sudo chmod +x extract_xc3028.pl
sudo cp xc3028-v27.fw /lib/firmware

Download the second one from here:

Then copy it to the firmware folder:

sudo cp dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw /lib/firmware

Now remove the v4l-dvb-folder:

rm -rfv v4l-dvb/

Installation of the patch

It's obsolete for kernel 2.6.26 and newer.

You need some packages. Under Debian or Ubuntu type:

sudo apt-get install build-essential mercurial gcc linux-headers-`uname -r`

Then download again the v4l-dvb folder which contains the patch:

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~pb/v4l-dvb/
cd v4l-dvb/

and then compile and install it:

make && sudo make install

Finally plug it in and watch, hopefully!


This howto works for the following cards too:
