AVerMedia A16D Front

A DVB-T PCI card produced by AVerMedia.

This card is supported under Linux, having since been added to kernel 2.6.26.

Note: There are actually two different AVerMedia cards that bear the identical name "AVerTV Hybrid+FM PCI", so one must be careful to distinguish between this one, the A16D, and the other, the A16AR.

Note2: The kernel 2.6.26 only supports analogue mode. Please use the kernel 2.6.27 for DVB-T suport.

Contents

Overview/Features

Components Used

The A16D model consists of the following hardware components:

  • Xceive XC3028 (tuner & analog demodulator)
  • Philips SAA7135HL (A/V decoder)
  • Zarlink MT352 (DVB-T demodulator)

Identification

If you have an A16D correctly detected then "sudo lspci -vvnn" should be similar to:

(Example from Ubuntu 8.04 using 2.6.24-19-generic x86_64)
03:07.0 Multimedia controller [0480]: Philips Semiconductors SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder [1131:7133] (rev d1)
	Subsystem: Avermedia Technologies Inc Unknown device [1461:f936]
	Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
	Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
	Latency: 32
	Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 21
	Region 0: Memory at fdcfe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K]
	Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2
		Flags: PMEClk- DSI- D1+ D2+ AuxCurrent=0mA PME(D0-,D1-,D2-,D3hot-,D3cold-)
		Status: D0 PME-Enable- DSel=0 DScale=0 PME- 
  • Note: the above output from lspci shows the card NOT being properly/automagically detected/recognized! ... it would be nice if someone could provide the output from lspci where it shows the card being properly detected

Drivers

Sample kernel output

If you have an A16D correctly detected then the related dmesg output should be similar to:
