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)

  • 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
