= TerraTec T6 Dual DVB-T stick =
 +
 
 +
It consists of
 +
* Afatech AF9035B-N2 USB Interface with included AF9033 Demodulator
 +
* Afatech AF9033B-N2 second Demodulator
 +
* Fitipower FC0012 Tuner (2 off)
 +
 
 +
This device is currently not officially supported by Linux, however it is possible to get this device working using a slightly patched version of the AF9035 driver as used in [[EzCap_DVB_T_Stick]].
 +
 
 +
== Instruction how to get the stick working ==
 +
 
 +
Follow the instruction to get the AF903x source code archive '''AF903x.tar.gz''' in [[EzCap_DVB_T_Stick]].
 +
 
 +
I run kernel 3.0.1 and therefore I needed a few patched just to get the source code compiled (you may not need all of them, but they shouldn't hurt either):

== CAPTURES USB VC-211A AND TERRATEC CINERGY 200 ==
 +
 
 +
The devices USB Model VC-211A, which can be found with the logos of ACTionMaster, Digitus or LinXcel, were added as card = 74 in cardlist of the em28xx driver at November 26, 2009, by the developer Mauro Chehab. These devices are erroneously recognized by the command "lsusb" as:
 +
 
 +
Bus 001 Device 002: ID eb1a:2800 eMPIA Technology, Inc. Terratec Cinergy 200
 +
 
 +
But they are simpler.Besides not having audio processor, are devoid of tuner and EEPROM. And why not have EEPROM, the driver v4l2 needs editing a file *. conf to recognize it and set it up correctly as CARD = 74 (VC-211A - ACTionMaster, or LinXcel Digitus). This can be done in the console as follows:
 +
 
 +
$ sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/captura.conf $ Sudo gedit / etc / modprobe.d / captura.conf
 +
 
 +
In this file, you must edit and save with the following parameters:
 +
 
 +
options em28xx card=6 core_debug=1 options em28xx card = 6 core_debug = 1
 +
 
 +
Obviously, until that amendment to em28xx kernel is integrated into the various Linux distributions that use v4l2, the user that have a VC-211A  should download the tree v4l2 and compile the driver as guides on page How_to_Obtain, _Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers.
 +
 
 +
Before this change, the resolution of 720x480 required by v4l2 version 0.1.2 was not compatible with the captors VC-211A and older ones, since they only work with 640x480. This error generated a loss of data causing the captured image does not exceed the maximum of 360x240. This whole problem has been corrected by the master Mauro Chehab, which is worthy of respect and gratitude of the entire Linux community and especially the fans for the video capture.
 +
 
 +
We take this opportunity to give our thanks to all those who have worked directly or indirectly in the developed project video4linux.

This is a linux supported dvb t2 dual stick.

==Making it Work==
 +
 
 +
The Terratec Cinergy TStick RC HD works with [Ambosa's RTL2832U driver|https://github.com/ambrosa/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0/]
 +
It won't find any channel with the included antenna, but when connected to
 +
the aerial outlet (building antenna) it works fine with occassional square noise
 +
or very short cuts (maybe more often in HD channels ???).
 +
 
 +
Can't test very often, because it's at a friend's, not mine.
 +
 
 +
I haven't found an email address to tell Ambrosa and I don't have
 +
a GitHub account, maybe someone who has can send a link to the GitHub forum?
 +
 
 +
The system I tested is a Debian squeeze, with a custom compiled linux-libre 3.2.1.
 +
 
 +
I followed

TerraTec T6 Dual DVB-T stick

It consists of

  • Afatech AF9035B-N2 USB Interface with included AF9033 Demodulator
  • Afatech AF9033B-N2 second Demodulator
  • Fitipower FC0012 Tuner (2 off)

This device is currently not officially supported by Linux, however it is possible to get this device working using a slightly patched version of the AF9035 driver as used in EzCap_DVB_T_Stick.

Instruction how to get the stick working

Follow the instruction to get the AF903x source code archive AF903x.tar.gz in EzCap_DVB_T_Stick.

I run kernel 3.0.1 and therefore I needed a few patched just to get the source code compiled (you may not need all of them, but they shouldn't hurt either):

CAPTURES USB VC-211A AND TERRATEC CINERGY 200

The devices USB Model VC-211A, which can be found with the logos of ACTionMaster, Digitus or LinXcel, were added as card = 74 in cardlist of the em28xx driver at November 26, 2009, by the developer Mauro Chehab. These devices are erroneously recognized by the command "lsusb" as:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID eb1a:2800 eMPIA Technology, Inc. Terratec Cinergy 200

But they are simpler.Besides not having audio processor, are devoid of tuner and EEPROM. And why not have EEPROM, the driver v4l2 needs editing a file *. conf to recognize it and set it up correctly as CARD = 74 (VC-211A - ACTionMaster, or LinXcel Digitus). This can be done in the console as follows:

$ sudo gedit /etc/modprobe.d/captura.conf $ Sudo gedit / etc / modprobe.d / captura.conf

In this file, you must edit and save with the following parameters:

options em28xx card=6 core_debug=1 options em28xx card = 6 core_debug = 1

Obviously, until that amendment to em28xx kernel is integrated into the various Linux distributions that use v4l2, the user that have a VC-211A should download the tree v4l2 and compile the driver as guides on page How_to_Obtain, _Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers.

Before this change, the resolution of 720x480 required by v4l2 version 0.1.2 was not compatible with the captors VC-211A and older ones, since they only work with 640x480. This error generated a loss of data causing the captured image does not exceed the maximum of 360x240. This whole problem has been corrected by the master Mauro Chehab, which is worthy of respect and gratitude of the entire Linux community and especially the fans for the video capture.

We take this opportunity to give our thanks to all those who have worked directly or indirectly in the developed project video4linux.

This is a linux supported dvb t2 dual stick.

Other Images

Use the included code to insert other images if necessary. Add as many high resolution pictures as you can i.e the card, the original box, the remote and, when uploading the files to the wiki, give them detailed specific names. Note: only use images taken by yourself or those 3rd party images for which you have received express written consent (such as from a vendor) that permits their usage. For example:

Making it Work

The Terratec Cinergy TStick RC HD works with [Ambosa's RTL2832U driver|https://github.com/ambrosa/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0/] It won't find any channel with the included antenna, but when connected to the aerial outlet (building antenna) it works fine with occassional square noise or very short cuts (maybe more often in HD channels ???).

Can't test very often, because it's at a friend's, not mine.

I haven't found an email address to tell Ambrosa and I don't have a GitHub account, maybe someone who has can send a link to the GitHub forum?

The system I tested is a Debian squeeze, with a custom compiled linux-libre 3.2.1.

I followed

[1]

(except I used KBUILD_SRC=/home/[...]/linux-3.2.1 make instead of make ) and applied the following patch (simply add the vendor and device ids )

Firmware

I haven't copied any firmware and I doubt linux-libre would have loaded it. I think it works without any firmware file. Didn't check if there is any firmware somehow embedded in the source I compiled or it's simply shipped already on the usb stick.

Drivers

[Ambosa's RTL2832U driver|https://github.com/ambrosa/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0/] modified with the vendor and device Id.

It says GPL but I haven't researched the source, authorship attributions or changelog.
