WinTV-Nova-T-Stick

A DVB-T USB device from Hauppauge.

Note: Currently, the Nova-T Stick (70009) is known to suffer from I2C errors. Updating to current Hg drivers and using new firmware should cure this.

Making it work

Firmware

You will need the dvb-usb-dib0700-03-pre1.fw firmware file in /lib/firmware or the relevant place for your distribution.

Drivers

Status on 11 August 2007

Just use Mercurial by following the How_to_install_DVB_device_drivers instructions.

Sample kernel output

This is for the 70001 version, using the driver in Linux 2.6.22.1.

dvb-usb: Hauppauge Nova-T Stick successfully initialized and connected.

Remote control support

At least the 70001 version has an IR sensor. Though as of 11 August 2007 there is no support for the sensor in v4l-dvb, it is known to work with Hauppauge's 45-button remote control and will handle signals from similar remote controls.

This patch implements support for the IR sensor; if you have problems with a flood of "unknown key" messages in the kernel log, you'll also need this patch (it is not cleanly applicable to recent trees, but it is an easy one-liner to do by hand).

Note: The IR support patch still hasn't made it into the tree, and has not yet received any feedback (as of 13 August 2007), and the log-flood patch should currently be regarded as a temporary workaround.
