A hybrid ATSC USB 2.0 device from DViCO.

Support for the digital functionality of this USB box was added to the 2.6.16 kernel.1

Overview/Features

It belongs to the class of USB devices codenamed Bluebird.

  • S-Video, Composite and audio inputs 1
  • dipole antenna
  • remote control


Components Used

It features the following components:

  • LG Innotek TDVS-H064F (NIM)
    • Infineon TUA6034 (tuner)
    • Philips TDA9887 (analog IF demodulator)
    • LG DT3303 (digital demodulator)
  • Conexant CX25843 (A/V decoder)
  • Cirrus Logic/Crystal 533KZ (audio ADC) 2
  • Cypress CY7C68013A (FX2LP) (USB 2.0 bridge)
  • Note 1: While the hardware supports analog functionality, the driver currently lacks support for these features (support is forthcoming).
  • Note 2: Why a 3rd party audio ADC was included in the design is a curious question, given that the Conexant CX25843 is indeed capable of handling audio input sources.
