Gadmei USB TVBox UTV380

A Small USB based analogue capture device using EM2860 and Xceive xc2028 chip Tuner.

It is currently not supported under Linux.

Overview/Features

  • It has Television and S-Video inputs via Two separate 3.5mm tail cables
  • It falls under V4L's "Em28xx devices" category (being based upon an EM2860 usb bridge)

Components Used

Verified using dmesg as well as physical inspection of the PCB.

  • Empia EM2860 (USB video bridge)
  • Empia EMP202 (AC'97 audio processor)
  • NXP/Philips SAA7113 (video decoder)
  • Xceive XC2028ACQ (Analog chip tuner)
  • 24C04 (EEPROM)
  • HCF4052 (4-channel Analog multiplexer)

Current Status

  • Currently it works after patching the v4l-dvb.
  • Need to test the sound and Composite inputs.

Update: I tried the sox command to route the /dev/dsp1 to /dev/dsp, but it thrown error saying /dev/dsp1 is already locked and cannot open. I think it is due to the pulse audio already locked it. But still I can't get any sound may be some gpio registers deed to be set or the device definition needs some change. Any inputs are welcome. I am testing this on ubuntu Lucid 10.04 64-bit.

  • Will release the patch soon.
  • I need help on releasing this as a Patch upstream.
  • Anybody interested can contact me jeevas.v AT gmail.com

To make it work

I have done these changes to make it work.

  • 1. extract the Xcieve firmware for xc2028 and copy to /lib/firmware as mentioned in the em28xx page.
  • 2. extract the latest v4l-dvb source as mentioned in the em28xx page.
  • 3. go to v4l-dvb/linux/media/video/em28xx folder.
  • 4. edit em28xx.h file and add the device:

.
.
 #define EM2870_BOARD_REDDO_DVB_C_USB_BOX          73
 #define EM2800_BOARD_VC211A			  74
 #define EM2882_BOARD_DIKOM_DK300		  75
 #define EM2860_BOARD_GADMEI_UTV380          76
.
.

  • 5 edit em28xx-cards.c and add the card in card definitions
.
.
.
  [EM2860_BOARD_GADMEI_UTV380] = {
		.name         = "Gadmei UTV380",
		.tuner_type   = TUNER_XC2028,
		.tuner_gpio     = default_tuner_gpio,
		.has_dvb        = 0,
		.decoder      = EM28XX_SAA711X,
		.input        = { {
			.type     = EM28XX_VMUX_TELEVISION,
			.vmux     = SAA7115_COMPOSITE2,
			.amux     = EM28XX_AMUX_VIDEO,
		}, {
			.type     = EM28XX_VMUX_COMPOSITE1,
			.vmux     = SAA7115_COMPOSITE0,
			.amux     = EM28XX_AMUX_LINE_IN,
		} }
	},
.
.
.


And also add the card's usb id in the list if it is not already there.

.
.
 { USB_DEVICE(0xeb1a, 0x50a3),
			.driver_info = EM2860_BOARD_GADMEI_UTV380 },
 .
 .


  • 6. Edit em28xx-core.c and make sure that the AC97 audio processor is properly detected. In this case I have to add one more vendor based on the dmesg output.

.
.
	/* Try to identify what audio processor we have */
	if (((vid == 0xffffffff)||(vid == 0x83847650)) && (feat == 0x6a90))
		dev->audio_mode.ac97 = EM28XX_AC97_EM202;
	else if ((vid >> 8) == 0x838476)
		dev->audio_mode.ac97 = EM28XX_AC97_SIGMATEL;
 .
 .

  • 7. Then execute the following commands to build and install the kernel modules.
 sudo make distclean
 sudo make menuconfig (Due to some error I have to disable one of the modules in the list to get past the compilation).
 sudo make
 sudo make install
  • 8. After this restart your machine, plugin your device and start your favourite tv app and enjoy.
