Problems

Kernel >= 2.6.37

The driver in the kernel is broken for at least 2.6.37 and 2.6.38. See Kernel bug #31962.

The driver works again in kernel >=2.6.38.8 Linux 2.6.38.8 Linux 2.6.39.1

DVB-T

The card has problems with DVB-T tuning:

  • With Kaffeine, it works until the user tries to switch the channel. After restarting Kaffeine, it continues with the newly selected channel.
  • MythTV cannot scan DVB-T channels with this card at all. MythTV developers claim this is a driver bug.

Tuning manually with tzap works, as well as subsequent reading of /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0.

The problems mentioned in this section were fixed in the Linux 3.0 kernel via the following commit:

http://git.kernel.org/?p=linux/kernel/git/torvalds/linux-2.6.git;a=commit;h=2d1969312d6319d28ae9609a84f969b6933bd51c

This specifically addresses problems seen with Kaffeine, MythTV, and w_scan.
