Other Images


Provide here, for PCI/PCIe devices, the relevant output of lspci -vnn or, in the case of USB devices, lsusb -v . We're particularly interested in the subsystem ID's. To make a code block simply make the first character of each line a space. For example:

# lsusb -v **CODE**

Making it Work

First place the firmware file (see below) in the correct location and reboot. Then the easiest method is to use Kaffeine to scan for channels. The AVF4910 chip has a big responsibility in receiving analog TV or radio. Unfortunatly no Linux driver for it exists at the time of writing. Thus, analog reception will not work.


A firmware file has to be downloaded and copied to /lib/firmware [1] [2]


Drivers name is em28xx/em2884

Sample Kernel Output

Provide the relevant portion of dmesg here. For example:

# dmesg
[   45.569669] em28xx: driver (Information to be completed on this page)

Remote Control Support

The device comes with a small remote control. Linux support is unknown.
