The firmware used for this card was the generic "xc3028_v27.fw" which can be found easily online.

Analog TV has been tested using the stock 2.6.35 kernel in Mandriva 2010.0. MPlayer was used successfully with clear ALSA audio. The CX88XX module had to have the card number identified as 81. Therefore the options needed to be set in "/etc/modprobe.d/video4linux" as "options cx88xx card=81".

DVB-T was not fully tested as no DVB-T signal exist in Canada. However, Kaffeine did correctly find the digital tuner and did scan the channels with nothing found.

FM radio has not been tested.
