The page is to describe and provide information for a device called EZgrabber2 which appears to be produced Mygica and Geniatech.

Overview/Features

The EZGrabber2 device shares the windows drivers for the similar devices Capit and EZGrabber, so likely much of the information will be in common with those. Please clarify if you have any of these products:

EZGrabber My Gica EZGrabber ? ?
Capit MyGica Capit MyGica Capit Old site Geniatech ? ?

Supposedly supports output of compressed MPEG1/2/4 stream(on windows). On linux, using a patched cx231xx driver, it is at least possible to get uncompressed YUV4:2:2 video and 48000Hz stereo through the corresponding alsa device.

It has the standard USB 2.0, stereo, composite and S-video inputs.

Components Used

The single chip on the board is labeled as a CX78921-11z. This is no reference to this chip on Conexant's website nor practically any the entire internet, so likely this is just a renumbered chip for these specific vendors. However the indication that is can output compressed MPEG4 video does suggest that it is not your standard cx23100/1/2.

However examining the Windows drivers provided by the vendors, they refer to the device Polaris.CVBS or POLARIS.OTG102, and contain many of the same driver files as other devices containing the cx23100/1/2 chips .


Images

  • until I have permission to upload the images to this site, they are posted on google sites, click the links beside the description.

Making it work

We need to add the device definition and some related details to the cx231xx driver and have installed the appropriate firmware (see below). Also we need to have built and load the kernel modules for cx25840 and cx231xx before plugging in the device (#modprobe cx25840;modprobe cx231cc). If I don't do this, the cx231xx module will autoload on detecting the device, but the cx25840 will not, and the device doesn't function. I don't know why, go ask your dad.


The following is a patch against a kernel source 3.6. It should be fairly applicable to sources from 2.6.32 on through 3.7, with the possible note of the device number in cx2311.h. note in 3.8 on presumable onwards, the structure of the drivers/media/ directory has been changed and no longer is there a drivers/media/video directory, but rather the video drivers are regrouped by interface (usb, pci), so the cx231xx drivers are under drivers/media/usb/cx231xx while the related and also needed driver for the cx25840 is under drivers/media/pci/.

Kernel Patch

I'll also post a downloadable patch once I have permission to upload to this site. Until then, and for posterity, the text is below.

Firmware

Like for many similar devices of various chipsets, a firmware image or images are required that the driver uploads to the device. These are often closed source binary blobs under unclear license as far as their redistributeability. To further complicate matters, there are various versions of these firmwares with the same name that are not (always) cross-compatible. To complicate matters even further, there is apparently a mix-up one of the firmware files distrubted though linuxtv.org and linux-firmware.git. See [1] and especially [2] for more information.

I have these in my /lib/firmware folder with the device working, although I still get messages in the system log that "unable to open firmware v4l-cx23885-avcore-01.fw".
