Making it work in Ubuntu

Updated 20 Nov 2010 by AMX.

Here is a simple HOWTO/Workaround to get this card working . This is based on debian flavours. Although there are some people that have come up with shell scrips and patches to get something similar, it is better that everyone knows how things are done, and also hopefully this will be incorporated into the new releases of V4L. Until then we all have to sweat it a bit!!

The real solution is based on the bug found in http://www.xpmediacentre.com.au/community/tuners/41937-leadtek-dtv2000ds-4.html . There is another issue that better get fixed and it is to do with I2C byte write numbers.

Please leave comments in the discussion session or put comments in http://www.xpmediacentre.com.au/community/tuners/41937-leadtek-dtv2000ds-4.html so that we keep this updated.

1- Starting from a clean install of 10.04 or 10.10, perform the initial steps to install V4L drivers

sudo apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential


2- go to http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/rev/abd3aac6644e and click on the "bz2" link and download the file.

(Note that here I am referring to a specifig tag of the repository, i.e. abd3aac6644e.)

3- run

bzcat v4l-dvb-abd3aac6644e.tar.bz2 | tar xv
cd v4l-dvb-abd3aac6644e

This should create a directory called v4l-dvb-abd3aac6644e

4- Do the following modifications

4.1- The small_i2c fix: This fix is from discussions here http://www.spinics.net/lists/linux-usb/msg37741.html .

Edit the file linux/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/af9015.c and replace

static struct tda18271_config af9015_tda18271_config = {
	.gate = TDA18271_GATE_DIGITAL,
	.small_i2c = 1,
};

with

static struct tda18271_config af9015_tda18271_config = {
	.gate = TDA18271_GATE_DIGITAL,
	.small_i2c = TDA18271_16_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT,
};

Then edit the file linux/drivers/media/common/tuners/tda18271.h

and replace

enum tda18271_small_i2c {
        TDA18271_39_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 0,
	TDA18271_16_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 1,
	TDA18271_08_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 2,

};

with

enum tda18271_small_i2c {
        TDA18271_39_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 0,
	TDA18271_16_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 16,
	TDA18271_08_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 8,
	TDA18271_03_BYTE_CHUNK_INIT = 3,
};


4.2- The main and the nasty bug i.e. the if_sample_freq bug: This fix is from http://www.xpmediacentre.com.au/community/tuners/41937-leadtek-dtv2000ds-4.html . If you have a quick look inside the file (just out of interest), you will notice that how this bug was messing up all the tuner frequency calculations. The frequencies are given in Table 41 in the datasheet (http://www.nxp.com/documents/data_sheet/TDA18211HD.pdf)

Anyway

edit the file linux/drivers/media/dvb/frontends/af9013.c

and replace

		/* TDA18271 uses different sampling freq for every bw */
		if (state->config.tuner == AF9013_TUNER_TDA18271) {
			switch (bw) {
			case BANDWIDTH_6_MHZ:
				if_sample_freq = 3300000; /* 3.3 MHz */
				break;
			case BANDWIDTH_7_MHZ:
				if_sample_freq = 3800000; /* 3.8 MHz */
				break;
			case BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:
			default:
				if_sample_freq = 4300000; /* 4.3 MHz */
				break;
			}
		}

with

		/* TDA18271 uses different sampling freq for every bw */
		if (state->config.tuner == AF9013_TUNER_TDA18271) {
			switch (bw) {
			case BANDWIDTH_6_MHZ:
				if_sample_freq = 3300000; /* 3.3 MHz */
				break;
			case BANDWIDTH_7_MHZ:
				if_sample_freq = 3500000; /* 3.5 MHz */
				break;
			case BANDWIDTH_8_MHZ:
			default:
				if_sample_freq = 4000000; /* 4.0 MHz */
				break;
			}
		}


5- Compile and install the drivers

make sure you are back in the v4l-dvb-abd3aac6644e directory

make config
sed -i -e "s/FIREDTV=m/FIREDTV=n/" v4l/.config
make
sudo make install
wget http://palosaari.fi/linux/v4l-dvb/firmware/af9015/5.1.0.0/dvb-usb-af9015.fw
sudo cp dvb-usb-af9015.fw /lib/firmware

6- Shutdown (you have to shutdown)

7- Startup

8- Hopefully now your tuner is recognized and works happily. If not, double check the process, check for errors that might have been missed, and if it all fails, post to a forum.


Remote Control Support

I (Gregoryo) have had no success with the remote, but there is hope from dmesg:

[   22.263721] input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0e.0/0000:02:0a.2/usb2/2-1/input/input5

N: Name="IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver"
P: Phys=usb-0000:02:0a.2-1/ir0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0e.0/0000:02:0a.2/usb2/2-1/input/input5

B: KEY=108fc310 2802891 0 0 0 0 118000 200180 4803 e1680 0 100000 ffe

So I've been using /dev/input/event5 in my tests. I have tried using evtest, mode2, and irw to no avail. I get no indication of any signal coming from the remote. Am I missing a kernel driver module?
