Revision as of 02:51, 26 November 2008

On this page you will find information regarding DVB-T PCI cards.

Please be aware that:
  • The information contained here is likely non-exhaustive and, despite best efforts to do otherwise, may contain errors. (Please help to keep these lists up-to-date so that they are useful for everyone!)
  • If your device is not listed, try:
    • searching the existing mailing list archives:
      • Linux-Media Mailing List (LMML) archives (via vger or .... )
      • or from the older mailing lists (now largely deprecated in favour of the LMML):
        • dvb mailing list archives (via spinics or MARC ... )
        • v4l mailing list archives (via .... )
    • searching for information with Google or other internet search engine
    • by posting a question about the device directly to the LMML (but please do conduct a search first, as it may already have been discussed!)
    • Note: when it comes to support, it is generally a good idea to try the current V4L-DVB sources because some device drivers can be very new and thus may have not made their way into the mainstream kernel.
In any regard, in respect to the above listed suggestions, you may find it to be the case that your device is actually already supported or that experimental support is available.
  • Because the component constitution on many devices are often similar or identical, there may be devices that are unlisted but may actually work with the existing driver framework for previously supported devices. In such a case, your non-listed but working device will likely be reported in your system messages as being one of those previously supported devices. If you encounter such an occurrence, please do report your success on the LMML so that proper detection/identification of your device can be added within the drivers.
  • Lastly, it bears worth repeating the request: Please help to keep these lists up-to-date so that they are useful for everyone!


Supported DVB-T PCI Cards

Revision 2 of this card has just been released (image). The new card uses a DIBCOM tuner and modulator and does not work under the current driver.
The linuxTV drivers are now updated, the revision two works beautifully. The changes do not yet seem to be merged with the Linux kernel (2.6.27), the link above should help you install the drivers. The Rev 2 card may not work properly with older kernels such as 2.6.22 (AMD 780G chipsets, USB disconnects), even using the latest linuxTV drivers. The following link also has some useful information: http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=616103

  • Antenna in
  • IR In
  • Dual DVB-T tuner card
  • Supports HD streams
  • Requires patching
  • Is actually two USB devices attached though a Via PCI-to-USB bridge
  • Uses dvb-usb-cxusb module
  • Rev 2 uses dib0070, dib7000p, dib7000m, dib3000mc, dibx000_common modules
  • Includes low-profile PCI bracket

ca. 100 € works with v4l-dvb hg from 2006-09-20 [36] or kernel >= 2.6.19 - DiBcom DiB0700
  • Antenna In
  • Remote In (should now be working)
  • Dual DVB-T tuner card.
  • As of 28/08/2008, according to Michael Krufky, all currently released versions, including the Diversity model, are supported by head of v4l-dvb hg, and the driver is likely to stay ahead of new card releases in the future. Please if anyone finds any of the further comments below still relevant in the next 6 months then mark them so, otherwise I intend to remove them to tidy up.
  • PCI 2.2 card using 3.3V. Failed to run on PCI 2.1 system.
  • Card contains a USB2.0 device with USB host controller. See DiBcom DiB0700 USB2.0 DVB-T based devices for further details
  • Device/drivers previously (?) suffered from a problem. The USB DVB-T tuners seem to occasionally "disconnect" and reconnect during a tuning operation, this causes the kernel to oops requiring a reboot. Should be fixed now. See https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/linux/+bug/204857 and http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?p=4887362#post4887362 and http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-dvb/msg25092.html and http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-dvb/msg25225.html (April 2008) and http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-dvb/msg25367.html and http://forums.whirlpool.net.au/forum-replies-archive.cfm/953039.html (April 2008)
  • USB Disconnect problem has not been fixed yet (this might not be the case, see above). See the linux-dvb mailing list for details. On my system, the USB disconnect doesn't require a reboot, just unloading the modules and reloading them restores it. The problem is annoying enough that approx 5 out of 40 recordings per week could be lost.
  • Scanning (or tuning with any AUTO parameters) is known to be broken in kernel 2.6.20, and probably earlier kernels too. Fixed in kernel 2.6.21; try [this patch] for older kernels.
  • A new version appears to have been released (in the UK at least) which as of writing this (26/07/2007) doesn't work with the normal Nova-T 500 driver. The card is labelled with the 'Diversity' feature stickers and the actual model number on the board is Nova-TD 500. The card has two aerial connectors.

Note- The version with the Samsung tuner has been tested and is capable of receiving HD broadcasts (Note: Conexant CX2388x|CX23883 specs say digitiser on chip cannot do more than 576i/p, so 720p/1080i is questionable).

  • Antenna In
  • Common Interface for TT-budget-S/C/T-1500 is supported.

  • To make the fine piece of remotecontrol that comes with the budget t 1500 card, add these lines to:
  • /etc/modprobe.d/options
  • options budget_ci rc5_device=255
  • And use it with the VDR Remote-plugin

Currently Unsupported DVB-T PCI cards

If you own one or more devices from the following list and you want to help with support development, please contact the Linux-Media Mailing List (LMML). Note that if your device is similar to or contains components for which driver development is currently being undertaken, then it is possible that you will pique the(se) developer's interest and can obtain some assistance that, possibly, leads to full support for your device.

However, please note that inquiries to the mailing list:

  • should NOT be treated as an order drop-off line/queue. You're soliciting help from volunteer developers who work on V4L-DVB matters in their spare time, and such work can be non-trivial (i.e. requiring even _thousands_ of hours work). So being demanding is one sure route to being ignored. (Honestly, this point really shouldn't even need to be written, but you'd be surprised at the number of irrational individuals who write into the mailing list demanding this or that).
  • may pass without even garnering a response -- that's a distinct by-product of the fact that there are only a limited number of developers, whom might be able to help, that are associated with the project. Often times, even if they wished to help, their energies are entirely tied up with other projects. In such cases, the best path might be to try to spearhead the driver development for your device yourself, or arrange to hire someone who can.
