AVerMedia TV+FM CardBus E506R


Original product page

AVermedia released their card with binary only driver for Mandriva and FC3/4. For ancient kernels of course. Due to licensing from chip vendor and the fact that AVerMedia is a proud GPL violator -- they do not bother publishing source for their driver that is actually based on V4L.

Looking inside the card we can see that it is:

  • Philips SAA7135HL PCI Audio/Video Broadcast Decoder
  • Xceive XC3028 Silicon Tuner
  • Zarlink MT352 Digital Terrestrial TV Demodulator

Analogue TV seems to work with PAL-BG (including audio) Since 14. May 2007 radio is also supported.

There's some experimental code in


$ cd /lib/firmware
$ wget
$ tar xvzf firmware_pinnacle.tgz
$ cd /tmp
$ hg clone
$ cd v4l-dvb-experimental/v4l
$ make
$ make install
- reboot here -
- plug in the device -
