DVB-S Budget PCI card by Twinhan Technology Co. Ltd

The only frontend driver for this card is the dst module. The tuner component initialization routines are held in the ASIC in the form of firmware (not reloadable through software). The oldest card in the DVB-S family from Twinhan !

The only difference between the VP-1020 and the VP-1020A is in the color of the board and the firmware in the ASIC.

This card uses the bttv driver. Well suppported by LinuxTV drivers.

Required modules and parameters:

dvb_core dvb_shutdown_timeout=0 
bttv i2c_hw=1 card=0x71 
bt878 
dst 
dvb-bt8xx

Loading just dvb-bt8xx will normally autodetect the card and load all the above modules with the required parameters.


Kernel Hangup Problems with Twinhan / Brooktree 1020a

If your kernel freezes at startup with the following last messages:
bttv0: subsystem: fefe:0001 (UNKNOWN)
bttv0: using: *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC *** [card=0,autodetected]

Deactivate the hotplug system udev:

Debian Users: delete the symlink S04udev and S36udev-mtab in /etc/rcS.d/
Other Linux Systems: look at your help pages where you can deactivate udev

I also deinstalled discover (auto-hardware-recognition software)
