For slightly newer firmware (v1.22.82.0) using drivers from Hauppauge

1) Download the driver archive :

wget http://www.hauppauge.de/software/mce/88x_2_122_26109_WHQL.zip

2) Decompress the .sys file :

unzip -jo 88x_2_122_26109_WHQL.zip Driver88/hcw88bda.sys

3) Extract the firmware and put it in the firmware directory :

sudo dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=/lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.22.82.0.fw skip=75504 bs=1 count=32501 
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.22.82.0.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw

Firmware v1.23.86.1

Firmware v1.23.86.1 is available with the TeVii S460 Linux driver at http://tevii.com/support.html. (But what's with the proprietary RAR archive format? Geez...)

wget http://tevii.com/Tevii_linuxdriver_0815.rar
sudo apt-get install unrar-free
unrar x Tevii_linuxdriver_0815.rar
sudo cp tevii_linuxdriver_0815/fw/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.23.86.1.fw

Firmware v1.26.90.0

For slightly newer firmware (v1.26.90.0) using drivers from Hauppauge

1) Download the driver archive (Note: see below for alternate instructions):

wget http://www.wintvcd.co.uk/drivers/88x_2_125_28070_WHQL.zip

2) Decompress the .sys file :

unzip -jo 88x_2_125_28070_WHQL.zip Driver88/hcw88bda.sys

3) Extract the firmware and put it in the firmware directory :

sudo dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=/lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.26.90.0.fw skip=105768 bs=1 count=32674
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.26.90.0.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw
  Ubuntu: Place file in /lib/firmware
  Debian: Place file in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/

The "manual" for new firmware. I put the greater size for length.

Note: There seems to be a more recent version of this firmware:

There´s a forum article describing how to extract the firmware: [1] --- see post #3. The download link to get the driver now seems to be [2]. Download it with:

wget http://www.wintvcd.co.uk/drivers/88x_2_126_28225_WHQL.zip

Decompress the .sys file :

unzip -jo 88x_2_126_28225_WHQL.zip Driver88/hcw88bda.sys

Extract the firmware and put it in the firmware directory :

sudo dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=/lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.26.90.0.fw bs=1 skip=105768 count=32290
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.26.90.0.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw

For verification of hcw88bda.sys in this version of the driver:

md5sum -b hcw88bda.sys
3f685a2ca6d1dae35b10c06f3a538d82 *hcw88bda.sys

The firmware will be reported as

sudo dmesg|grep cx
cx24116_load_firmware: FW version 1.26.90.0

Mythbuntu 9.04 users

Attention Mythbuntu 9.04 users: This card should actually work with this version of Mythbuntu out of the box. However, the installed firmware seems to be buggy so it is necessary to install the Firmware v1.20.79.0 following the steps above.

Drivers

Note: If someone wants to provide a brief synopsis of the driver tale of woe, outlining why it took so long then do so here ... or just read here

Ubuntu Hardy users should read the note about the sound driver (cx88_alsa) below.

Kernel / v4l-dvb driver

There is a complete driver for this card in the Linux kernel since version 2.6.28. It supports DVB-T, DVB-S/S2, analogue TV, A/V capture and FM radio. If you have the kernel 2.6.28 (or later) you do not need to install a driver yourself.

Note: The kernel 2.6.30, 2.6.31, 2.6.32 have a broken driver. The mercurial http://hg.kewl.org/pub/v4l-dvb-20100517/ modules works fine

For developers, or those who need to use a kernel earlier than 2.6.28, a development version of the driver is available in the v4l-dvb repository of the LinuxTV project (the ususal route to merging improvements into the kernel).

 hg clone http://hg.kewl.org/pub/v4l-dvb-20100517/
 cd v4l-dvb-20100517
 make
 make install
 reboot

Multiple frontends are supported: DVB-S/S2 and DVB-T appear as /dev/dvb/adapterN/frontend0 and /dev/dvb/adapterN/frontend1 respectively.

Due to a hardware limitation, the two frontends cannot be used simultaneously. However they can be used sequentially within the same application. The driver handles the mutual exclusion appropriately.

DVB-T and DVB-S are supported within API v3.2 (or the new API v5.0) and so it is compatible with current applications. DVB-S2 is accessed through API v5.0, also known as S2API, which was released in kernel 2.6.28.

Command-line scanning for channels can be done with scan-s2. Tuning DVB-S and DVB-S2 channels can be done with szap-s2 :

hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/scan-s2
hg clone http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/szap-s2

Kaffeine handles multiple frontends well without modification -- they appear in the DVB settings as "DVB Device 0:0" (=/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0, i.e. DVB-S/S2) and "DVB Device 0:1" (=/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1, i.e. DVB-T). Both devices can be configured and tuned in the application, and Kaffeine will switch to the correct one each time you change the channel. DiSEqC 1.2 is supported too. Kaffeine will display HDTV delivered over DVB-S2 or DVB-S, e.g. BBC HD, see Kaffeine.

See the section below on how to use this card with MythTV.

Sound driver

Alsa driver: cx88_alsa.

To make sure the sound card in the HVR-4000 does not grab card index 0 (instead of your motherboard or discrete sound card) add the following to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base (or wherever your distro sets alsa kernel module options):

# Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
options cx88_alsa index=-2

Note: the Ubuntu Hardy kernel (2.6.24) has a separate Ubuntu version of the cx88_alsa module which causes problems if you compile your own drivers (modprobe cx88_alsa gives 'cx88_alsa: disagrees about version of symbol' errors). Upgrade the kernel to one which uses a stock cx88_alsa module and then compile and install the HVR4000 driver. See http://www.howtoforge.com/kernel_compilation_ubuntu.

Usage with MythTV

MythTV v0.22 onwards supports multiple frontends and works fine. UPDATE: DVB-T has no channel search under Broadcast with h264/HE-AAC. Scan resulting in:

Signal Strength: 99%, signal/noise: 49%

All channel scans end up with "Timed out, no signal". Seems to be something broken in MythTV for this function.

Note: There seems to be a bug since kernel 3.3.8:

A bug since kernel 3.3.8 (according to http://www.sat4all.com/forums/topic/324586-iemand-sasc-ng-al-werkend-met-32-kernels/page__st__20#entry2123480) triggers a race condition that makes MythTV unable to get a lock (http://code.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/10830).

Most easily worked around by running 'femon -H -aX' (where X is the adapter number used) for scanning to help MythTV get a lock. Confirmed to work on Kubuntu 12.10 running MythTV 0.26-patches with kernel 3.5. Installation of firmware still required.

Analogue TV and Teletext Receiver

Does anyone have any info about Linux support?

Note: I have latest http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb with mythtv working with analogue TV. You add it as a normal V4L capture card in mythtv. You need this patch to make inital tuning (When you press "Watch TV") in mythtv work: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5744, without it you need to change channel before you see picture instead of snow. Scanning for channels also works. Set audiorate to 48000 to get good sound (in capturecard setup and also in playback groups). Anders 11:40, 26 September 2008 (CEST)

Another way is to use tvtime (http://tvtime.sourceforge.net/) which is available in many distros.

S-Video input

Play the video

 mplayer -rawaudio rate=48000 tv:// -tv norm=PAL-BG:input=2:alsa=1:adevice=hw.1:audiorate=48000:immediatemode=0:amode=1

This will play the video coming in input=2 (S-Video) (input=1 will be the Composite1 input), use alsa for the audio on device hw:1.

Record the video

 mencoder -fps 50 -ofps 50 -vf harddup,softskip,yadif=1 tv:// -tv driver=v4l2:device=/dev/video0:norm=PAL-BG:input=2:alsa:adevice=hw.1,0:audiorate=48000:width=768:height=576 -ovc lavc -lavcopts vcodec=mpeg4:autoaspect:vbitrate=512 -oac mp3lame -lameopts cbr:preset=96 -endpos 60 -o test.avi

FM Radio Receiver

The Latest Drivers have radio support. See here for radio listening applications http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Radio_Listening_Applications.

Example test. First start playing the ALSA sound:

arecord -D hw:1,0 -f dat | aplay  &

and then tune with fm-tools:

fm -T forever 99.3

or with radio (which can have preset radio stations):

radio -c /dev/radio0

Change to mono mode

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/radio0 -t mono

Go back to stereo mode

v4l2-ctl -d /dev/radio0 -t stereo

Remote Control Support

When you have installed the drivers check dmesg/logs and you'll find a line like:

input: CX88 IR (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR4000 as /class/input/inputX

You can run lirc for example like: lircd --driver=dev/input --device=/dev/input/eventX (replace X with what it finds in the dmesg)

  Debian: edit /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
  DRIVER="dev/input"
  DEVICE="/dev/input/eventX"

/etc/lirc/lircd.conf (Works)
