I recently got one of these "Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick"'s and I was wondering- is the connector on the side {that connects to s-video, stereo audio, and composite video} even a standard connector? If so, what's the pinout? [I know at least one of you peeps is a hardware hacker, surely...] My mom has a digital camera that uses an almost identical, if not exactly identical connector to connect to USB with one cable, but to connect to stereo audio and composite video with another cable, and I was wondering if these cables/devices would work together...?

So when I do:

modprobe em28xx device_mode=1 i2c_scan=1

I get:

...
Dec  3 22:29:59 cheren kernel: [17179957.448000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0x1c [???]
Dec  3 22:29:59 cheren kernel: [17179957.472000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0xa0 [eeprom]
Dec  3 22:29:59 cheren kernel: [17179957.476000] em28xx #0: found i2c device @ 0xc2 [tuner (analog)]
...

What is at 0x1c? Would this be the DVB demodulator? In analog mode I get:

...

yes it's the ATSC demod in your case. Only one chip can be visible at a time so first we focussed on NTSC, next step os ATSC.

Notes on audio

Audio has a clicking sound every 256ms(I measured it) with varying amplitude. I just did this to get a sample:

sox -r 48000 -w -c 2 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t wav /tmp/test.wav

Sample here: [[1]]

this is a known issue I already had it work properly a longer time ago but since then many things changed and I'm not able to test it till christmas.

Odd connector??

I recently got one of these "Pinnacle PCTV HD Pro Stick"'s and I was wondering- is the connector on the side {that connects to s-video, stereo audio, and composite video} even a standard connector? If so, what's the pinout? [I know at least one of you peeps is a hardware hacker, surely...] My mom has a digital camera that uses an almost identical, if not exactly identical connector to connect to USB with one cable, but to connect to stereo audio and composite video with another cable, and I was wondering if these cables/devices would work together...?
