The E3C EC168 is used in many cheap DVB-T Sticks. It is currently unsupported under Linux.

Known USB IDs are 18b4:1689, 18b4:fffa, 18b4:fffb, 18b4:1001 and 18b4:1002 (second tuner).

  • SinoVideo 3420A-2 DVB-T USB TV stick with MXL5003S tuner S/N:SV07113420A01555 18b4:1689
  • SKU 08309 USB DVB-T TV Dongle with Remote from DealExtreme uses this chip and has USB ID 18b4:1689.
  • GRTNTUSBV4 USB TNT Basic LIGHT from PC-Basic (Graphics) with MXL5003S tuner and has USB ID 18b4:1001.
  • MM002V2 Sweex MM002V2 Microtune MT2060 silicon tuner 18b4:1689
  • Tvisto USB DVB-T with MXL5003S tuner 18b4:fffa


Without drivers, ubuntu 8.10 detect the dongle as an USB Keyboard :

[    8.729023] usb 3-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 2
[    8.844654] usb 3-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

[    8.844994] usb 3-2: New USB device strings: Mfr=0, Product=0, SerialNumber=0
[    8.919832] input: HID 18b4:1001 as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:04.1/usb3/3-2/3-2:1.0/input/input5

SinoVideo 3420A-2

No eeprom in this one File:Http://plone.lucidsolutions.co.nz/dvb/t/usb/images/SV-3420A -PCB top.JPG Links: [1]

SKU 08309 USB DVB-T Dongle

SKU 08309 USB DVB-T Dongle requires Firmware-File called EC168BDA.bin contained in Windows Driver [2] Produced by E3C [3] (Tai-Hui Inc)

GRTNTUSBV4 USB TNT Basic LIGHT

Same USB descriptors as SinoVideo 3420A-2, but with another PID... IR is detected directly by the hidraw driver (usbhid)

The PC-Basic v4 USB Stick contains following chips :

The windows driver also upload a 7109-bytes sized firmware (EC168BDA.bin) to get the device working...

From "Graphics" french web site [6] the driver references another chips : the Intel CE6230/9500 (VID_8086&PID_9500)

Maybe the 5th version (which has the same enclosure) but also named dutv005 [7]
