Medion MD 95700 4in1 USB2.0 Conexant CX22702
Inner circuits (tuner)
The box offers an X10 RF controller with remote (Medion MD1 NBC). It is supported by the ati-remote or lirc-atiusb kernel module, but only the latter is supported by LIRC - do not load both simultaneously!
It also offers an internal USB hub with four ports, of which one is available on the outside.
The USB hub, the external USB port and the RF controller work without the 12V power supply.


There is a new firmware, version, for the MD 95700 from Medion. It is highly recommend to update the firmware for newer kernels. You can download it directly: [1] (in German). Please read the Readme before you flash the box.

This update fixes some video problems, but it is incompatible with the old dvb-usb drivers (i.e. kernels from 2005). If you use your box under Windows, don't forget to ensure that the Windows drivers are up to date too.

Image and sound glitches

If you have a good signal but a bad image and sound quality (artifacts, sound glitches) you are affected by a bug. Try this workaround: [2] but keep in mind that it's just a workaround, not a bugfix!

Analog TV tuner

The analogue part seems to be handled by a Conexant CX25842. It's kernel driver is cx25840, although the main driver for the Box isn't finished so it doesn't get detected (on 2.6.32).

LIRC configuration

  1. remove the kernel driver ati_remote when you want to use lirc. you can do it by blacklisting it or recompiling your kernel (check your distro's infos on that)
  2. set up lirc and the kernel drivers (you'll need the lirc_atiusb module) according to what your distro says.
  3. use the following for /etc/lirc/lircd.conf (or however it's named in your distro):
# brand: Medion MD1 NBC
# Made in China X10
# Medion Remote Control
# * FCC ID: B4S20018268

  1. start lirc and configure your app to interact. there are pretty many howtos for the major apps on the net.
