A DVB-T device that can get used both as PC peripheral and as standalone STB. Based on the AV711x MPEG Decoder and the TDA10045 Demodulator.

Linux driver exists, Audio and Video work. Section tables too?

The device is USB 1.1.

It will not work with VDR as it does not have a hardware MPEG2 decoder. Could an emulation layer be provided so it seemed that it did?

Under Debian

  • Follow the instructions in /usr/src/kernel-source-2.6.8/Documentation/dvb/.
  • Use v1.26 of the firmware. Look on archive.org and use zip -F after download if necessary. The most recent version (1.28a?) did not work for me.
  • Install dvb-utils
  • Playback and channel changing (via the playlist) is possible with gxine.
*Set up the channels with
scan -o zap /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/<country>-<region> > ~/.xine/channels.conf
*I've had problems with the picture not displaying, but that could be a driver problem.
  • You can record programs with
tzap "Channel id" -r & cat /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0 > "Programme.mpeg" &
