Making it Work

Make sure that the external power supply is connected!!!

Firmware

Build firmware from original ngene source code.

$ wget http://www.media-pointer.de/WebRoot/Store21/Shops/62290022/4AB0/D7EA/2E65/766B/4B4E/C0A8/28BE/FE04/ngene.tgz
$ tar xzf ngene.tgz
$ cd ngene
$ make -f Makefile.bin ngene_17.fw
$ cp ngene_17.fw /lib/firmware/

Experimental Driver

$ hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~endriss/ngene/ v4l-dvb-ngene
$ cd v4l-dvb-ngene
$ make
$ sudo make install
