WinTV-Nova-TD-Stick

A DVB-T USB device from Hauppauge.

Features

This device features two tuners and is supplied with two antennas. You'll have adapter0 and adapter1 in /dev/dvb, which you can use separately.

The "Diversity" option is a hardware based feature that allows for the device's two receivers to be configured in a combined use mode to achieve better reception on a single channel. The diversity feature of the DiBcom demodulators is currently not implemented in the Linux-DVB drivers, so only the dual tuner configuration is presently supported on such devices [1].

Identification

This device's USB ID is 2040:9580.

Making it work

Firmware

You will need the dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw firmware file in /lib/firmware or the relevant place for your distribution.

Drivers

Support is present in the Linux kernel from version 2.6.24-rc1.

Just use Mercurial by following the How_to_install_DVB_device_drivers instructions.
