  • idProduct: 0x9016

Making it work


Firstly, you need to copy the following firmware dvb-usb-af9015.fw in your /lib/firmware/ directory, or in the directory where your system will search for it.


It requires the dvb_usb_af9015 module, as well as dvb_usb, i2c_core, af9013 and mt2060 for tuning. The main dvb_usb_af9015 is not in the kernel before 2.6.25, so you MUST use the Mercurial way.

A quick way to do this is:

  • install mercurial in your distro way
  • run, in some user directory:
$ hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
$ cd v4l-dvb
$ make menuconfig
$ make
# su -
# cd /path/to/the/userdir/v4l-dvb
# make install

See the How to Obtain, Build and Install V4L-DVB Device Drivers for all the details.

Once modules are compiled and installed, you can plug the stick. Run

# lsmod | grep af901

If your output is similar to

af9013                 20932  1
dvb_usb_af9015         28032  0
dvb_usb                20428  1 dvb_usb_af9015
i2c_core               21656  5 mt2060,af9013,dvb_usb_af9015,dvb_usb

the card should work.

If not, try to load the modules manually

modprobe af9013 dvb_usb_af9015 mt2060
