Is a hybrid DVB-T Cardbus device from AVerMedia.

On kernel analog and DVB-T work. DVB-T requires a firmware. DVB-T still shows random, relatively small, corruptions.

On a personal note, given the history this card had, I'm surprised to see 2.6.32 already had DVB-T working. I'll test later if it works even better on 2.6.38.

AVerMedia also provides beta Linux drivers, applicable to specific Linux distrobutions, for the device. Generally these are worthless as you need to installl some ancient distro to make them work.


You need a firmware for the DVB part of this device. Xceive_XC3018#How_to_Obtain_the_Firmware How to obtain xc3028-v27.fw.
