Revision as of 04:21, 15 September 2009

The RTL2831U is a high-performance DVB-T COFDM demodulator + USB 2.0 that integrates a COFDM demodulator, FEC decoder, de-interleavers, and USB 2.0 interface. This chip can be found in USB devices that are sold under a numer of names: Compro VideoMate U90, TwinHan/AzureWave AD-TU200 (7047) DVB-T , Freecom , Conceptronic , and also Realtek.

The drivers posted for these cards can be found on:

    http://linuxtv.org/hg/~jhoogenraad/rtl2831-r2

This code is recently synchronised with the main v4l line. A switch for the IR type is included. It can be selected using modprobe. For example if you need type 2: unload the automatically loaded driver, and reload the good codes.

sudo modprobe -r dvb_usb_rtl2831u
sudo modprobe  dvb_usb_rtl2831u ir_protocol=2

Pending developments

The code cannot be included in the mainline, as the front-end and abck-end are not split (as is required)

I have started a second archive for splitting off the tuner code. For the mxl5005s tuner, this should be straightforward, as the code found its way into the mainstream v4l already.

However, I ran into problems with the mt2060 (which is the tuner I own). In the function MT2060_LocateIF1 is making this hard. This function doe some sort of calibration, and there is both internal data from the tuner required, and input from the demodulator.

Get the driver

To download and build the driver, issue

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~jhoogenraad/rtl2831-r2
make
make install
