Components Used

Model: EU 2008

  • USB Controller: Empia EM2884
  • Stereo A/V Decoder: Micronas AVF 49x0B
  • Hybrid Channel Decoder: Micronas DRX-K DRX3926K:A3 0.9.0
  • Tuner: NXP TDA18271HD/C2

Step by step instructions

Step 2 to 6 are only necessary if you are using a kernel < 4.1

1.) Download the DRX-K firmware and copy it to /lib/firmware

 wget https://github.com/OpenELEC/dvb-firmware/raw/master/firmware/dvb-usb-terratec-htc-stick-drxk.fw
 sudo cp dvb-usb-terratec-htc-stick-drxk.fw /lib/firmware/

2.) Get the latest sources:

 sudo rm -r media_build
 git clone git://linuxtv.org/media_build.git
 cd media_build

3.) Compile the sources, this step takes some time:

 ./build

4.) Install:

 sudo make install

5.) Reboot your machine

6.) Load the modules:

 modprobe em28xx card=82
 modprobe tda18271
 echo 0fd9 0018 > /sys/bus/usb/drivers/em28xx/new_id

7.) Plug the device and run a w_scan
