The next step is to install the driver for the dual ITE Tech IT9135 tuners.\n\n===Dual ITE Tech IT9135 tuners===\n\nTo install the tuner firmware driver, enter the following commands into a terminal:\n\n  # cd /lib/firmware/\n  # wget https://github.com/OpenELEC/dvb-firmware/raw/master/it9135/dvb-usb-it9135-01.fw\n\nYour dual ITE Tech IT9135 tuners are installed now! \n\n===Patching V4L-DVB to support the Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual===\nNext, we need to obtain, patch and build the latest V4L-DVB source code to recognise the Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual. To do this, we adapt the [http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/How_to_Obtain,_Build_and_Install_V4L-DVB_Device_Drivers#Retrieving_and_Building.2FCompiling_the_Latest_V4L-DVB_Source_Code \"Basic\" build Approach], following the instructions in the \"README.patches\" file that we obtain along with the rest of the V4L source code, via git. \n\nFirst, we obtain the source code unpatched. \n\n $ mkdir dvb-git\n $ cd dvb-git\n $ git clone git://linuxtv.org/media_build.git\n\nThen, we obtain the patch by Antti Palosaari to get the device recognised.

Execute the command\n\n $ ./build\n\nThis will begin building the firmware drivers (if all is as it should be - with the patch included). Watch the terminal output to ensure the af9035.c file is patched correctly, before going any further.

If the system attempts to concurrently load both sets into memory, you are bound to run into modprobe insertion errors (eg. unknown symbol or unknown parameter). All conflicting *.ko.gz files must be removed. The following command line can help you locate/remove these conflicting files in all your installed kernels: \n\n $ for file in `find /lib/modules -name \"*.ko\"`; do if [[ -e $file.gz ]]; then echo \"$file.gz should be removed\"; fi; done\n\nIf you're happy to automate the removal proccess of any detected conflicting modules, run the following command at your own risk: \n\n $ su\n # for file in `find /lib/modules -name \"*.ko\"`; do if [[ -e $file.gz ]]; then rm \"$file.gz\"; fi; done\n\n</div>\n\n===Verifying the driver installation===\nOnce that's done, restart your computer. Once it reboots check the output of the \"dmesg\" command. \"The Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual\" should be recognised and initialised successfully. During testing, a final restart was required to get MythTV to use the tuner once it was setup in mythtv-setup.\n\nSample successful \"dmesg\" output is below:\n\n [   10.274829] WARNING: You are using an experimental version of the media stack.\n As the driver is backported to an older kernel, it doesn't offer\n enough quality for its usage in production.\n Use it with care.\n Latest git patches (needed if you report a bug to linux-media@vger.kernel.org):\n 80f93c7b0f4599ffbdac8d964ecd1162b8b618b9 [media] media: st-rc: Add ST remote control driver\n 8ab1aa87f3f7381be195efcabf08dbc74626f25d [media] gpio-ir-recv: Include linux/of.h header\n b91670a0e924078521a838b9e707e42012c5e76a [media] tvp7002: Include linux/of.h header\n [   10.389333] usb 8-5: dvb_usb_af9035: prechip_version=83 chip_version=01 chip_type=9135\n [   10.389716] usb 8-5: dvb_usb_v2: found a 'Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual' in warm state\n [   10.393908] usb 8-5: dvb_usb_v2: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer\n [   10.393970] DVB: registering new adapter (Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual)\n [   10.401092] i2c i2c-1: af9033: firmware version: LINK=255.255.255.255 OFDM=2.47.14.0\n [   10.401107] usb 8-5: DVB: registering adapter 0 frontend 0 (Afatech AF9033 (DVB-T))...\n [   10.404891] i2c i2c-1: tuner_it913x: ITE Tech IT913X successfully attached\n [   10.404902] usb 8-5: dvb_usb_v2: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer\n [   10.404963] DVB: registering new adapter (Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual)\n [   10.418007] i2c i2c-1: af9033: firmware version: LINK=255.255.255.255 OFDM=2.47.14.0\n [   10.418022] usb 8-5: DVB: registering adapter 1 frontend 0 (Afatech AF9033 (DVB-T))...\n [   10.418175] i2c i2c-1: tuner_it913x: ITE Tech IT913X successfully attached\n [   10.431106] Registered IR keymap rc-empty\n [   10.431259] input: Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb8/8-5/rc/rc0/input6\n [   10.431391] rc0: Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.2/usb8/8-5/rc/rc0\n [   10.431399] usb 8-5: dvb_usb_v2: schedule remote query interval to 500 msecs\n [   10.431406] usb 8-5: dvb_usb_v2: 'Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual' successfully initialized and connected\n [   10.431468] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_af9035\n\n==External Links==\n\n[http://www.leadtek.com/eng/product/6/622/intro.aspx Product page for the Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Dual]"
