Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick (800e)

A hybrid ATSC USB 2.0 device by Pinnacle.

Support for the digital functionality of this device was added to the LinuxTV codebase on June 5, 2008 (hg 2aa420c58fc6), and is available in kernel 2.6.27 [1].

Note: This device identifies itself as a "PCTV 800e" and the subsystem information provided by lsusb -v is 2304:0227. Pinnacle has released a newer revision of the device with the exact same name and branding, but which is not covered by this driver. Information on that other version of the device (USB ID 2304:023a) can be found in the Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick (801e) article.


Overview/Features

This device supports ATSC (i.e. OTA Digital TV) and analog NTSC. It also has a connector on the side for an A/V cable dongle. The package includes a small dipole antenna and a short USB extension cable, as well as a remote control.

Card connectors/inputs:

  • TV antenna input(F-connector)
  • A/V adaptor, providing:
    • S-Video
    • Composite Video (RCA)
    • Stereo audio(3.5mm plug)
  • IR-Remote Sensor

The device is functionally identical to the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950 and Elgato EyeTV Hybrid US.

Components used

  • Xceive xc3028ACQ (tuner & analog demodulator)
  • LG DT3303 (digital demodulator)
  • Texas Instruments tvp5150 (video decoder)
  • Empiatech em2883 (USB bridge and analog audio)

Making it Work

Firmware

In order to use the LinuxTV driver, you need to download and install the firmware. Here is the procedure to follow (taken from the help found in extract_xc3028.pl):

Download the windows driver with something like:

wget http://www.steventoth.net/linux/xc5000/HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip

Extract the file hcw85bda.sys from the zip into the current dir:

unzip -j HVR-12x0-14x0-17x0_1_25_25271_WHQL.zip Driver85/hcw85bda.sys

run the extract_xc3028.pl script found in linux/Documentation/video4linux:

./extract_xc3028.pl

copy the generated file so it can be picked up by the Linux kernel:

cp xc3028-v27.fw /lib/firmware

Drivers

Use a recent snapshot of LinuxTV's v4l-dvb drivers

  • Both analog and ATSC digital reception are supported
  • Read the above mentioned Firmware section for details on installing the proper firmware.
