A [[DVB-T]] [[DVB-T PCI Cards|PCI card]] produced by [[AVerMedia]].
  
== AVerMedia AverTV Hybrid+FM PCI A16D ==
+
This card is supported under Linux, having since been added to kernel 2.6.26.
  
==== Info ====
+
{{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 [[AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM PCI (A16D)|A16D]], and the other, the [[AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM PCI (A16AR)|A16AR]].}}
  
Avermedia offers two "Hybrid+FM PCI" cards that,
 
unlike their names, feature different tuner chipset;
 
* model [http://www.avermedia.com/cgi-bin/products_digitvtuner_hybridPCI.asp?show=1 A16AR] has a good support in v4l and some bynary driver from [http://www.avermedia.com/cgi-bin/support_driverbympdpro.asp?category=TV%20Card&category2=Hybrid&proname=173&modelno=A16AR Driver download page]
 
* model [http://www.avermedia.com/cgi-bin/products_digitvtuner_hybridPCI(A16D).asp?show=1 A16D] has no support in v4l and no binary or source linux driver from the [http://www.avermedia.com/cgi-bin/support_driverbympdpro.asp?category=TV%20Card&category2=Hybrid&proname=173&modelno=A16D Driver download page].
 
  
[[Image:A16Dboard.jpg]]
+
{{Note|The kernel 2.6.26 only supports analogue mode. Please use the kernel 2.6.27 for DVB-T suport.}}
  
Looking on the card we can find:
 
  
* Philips SAA7135HL PCI Audio/Video Broadcast Decoder
+
==Overview/Features==
* Xceive XC3018 Silicon Tuner [[Image:xc3018.jpg]]
+
* Zarlink MT352 Digital Terrestrial TV Demodulator
+
  
Googlin' around it seem to me that Xceive XC3018 and 3028 are more than similar.
 
 
Also it seem that the card is quite similar to the
 
Cardbus version (E506R).
 
  
Analogue TV seems to work already, but without [[http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/AVerMedia_AverTV_Hybrid_FM_PCI_A16D#Audio_and_FM audio]].
+
===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)
  
Remote can be enabled as well: see [http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Remote_controllers remote controller] section in this wiki.

===Identification===

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

[[Category:DVB-T PCI Cards]]
Unfortunately with Fedora core 6 modules are installed in /usr/src/2.6.xxxx/kernel/
+
while modprobe looks for updated modules in /usr/src/2.6.xxxx/updates/.
+
Maybe you need to give the correct path as an install options; by now I simply copied
+
patched modules over the old ones.
+
 
+
As stated in this [http://www.ubuntu-es.org/index.php?q=node/27239 thread] create /etc/modprobe.d/saa7134 containing:
+
 
+
    options saa7134 card=105 alsa=1 tuner=71
+
    install saa7134 /sbin/modprobe xc3028-tuner; /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install saa7134; /sbin/modprobe saa7134-dvb; /sbin/modprobe saa7134-alsa
+
 
+
Remember that things don't work if you load saa7134 before xc3028-tuner.
+
 
+
==== installing firmware ====
+
 
+
Install firmware for the XC3028 as reported for the [http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/Em2880#Installation em2880]
+
 
+
Firmware ver.3 and 4 worked with my card.
+
 
+
trying to let FM to work, you will get an error as reported by Damir:
+
 
+
    ..........
+
    [78693.955561] upload_firmware, Loading specific radio firmware:
+
    xc3028_specific_radio.fw
+
    [78693.963196] Loading configuration from file failed!
+
 
+
Radio's firmware is called by xc3028-tuner module, but it is not actually provided with the above firmware installation.
+
 
+
I did some testing trying to extract firmware from windows drivers, but with no luck.
+
 
+
==== loading modules ====
+
 
+
Load modules with :
+
 
+
    $ modprobe saa7134
+
 
+
Modules will also get loaded automatically at boot time.
+
 
+
==== Dvb-t ====
+
 
+
Digital terrestrial is not working at the moment: to implement this probably need adding xc3028+mt352 definition to saa7134-dvb module.
+
 
+
==== Audio and FM ====
+
 
+
Thanks Damir, I was adviced:
+
 
+
    TV works fine (except a fact that the sound must be processed with something
+
    like 'arecord -D hw:2,0 -r 32000 -c 2 -f S16_LE | sox -q -c 2 -r 32000 -w -t
+
    wav - -t alsa hw:0,0'), but FM radio doesn't.
+
 
+
I will investigate the above, but until now I'm not able to have TV audio nor FM from speakers!  :-(  Help's wellcome!!
+
 
+
----
+
 
+
cool so audio also works with it! FM needs an extra firmware which isn't implemented for your device so you won't have any luck with it.

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.


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


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)

		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
(From Gentoo, kernel 2.6.30-gentoo-r5 x86_64)
