Support for its digital side was added to Hg in September 2009.
Dual hybrid digital/analog tuners, low profile.
- Single slot PCI Express (PCIe) X1 board, half height.
- Two analog tuners, each with their own hardware encoders
- Two digital TV receivers for ATSC or clear QAM
- Dual built-in hardware MPEG-2 encoders.
- Pair of NXP TDA18271HD tuner chips.
Could someone who has this card please take a good look at the board and list all the chips here?
The REV C1F1 has:
- NXP SAA7164E/3
- Pair of Conexant CX24228-21Z demodulators
Samsung 819 K4H561638H-UCCC
The REV C2F2 has
The REV C3F2 has
- NXP SAA7164E/3
- Samsung 846 - K4H561638J-LCCC - H56162YI369GDU
- Pair of Conexant CX24228-21Z - NI3W4H - 0811 KR
- 0916 - 3506 - EFE - N8578
- 24C3265I- 408(4)9E - not sure on the (4)
- Pair of LD1117 - C822
The REV C4F2 has:
- Trident SAA7164E/3 (P2A988.00 02 / ESD11252)
- Samsung S5H1411X01-Y0 / N3511ND / H1103 (Two of these)
- Presumed pair of: NXP TDA1827 1HDC2 / GT1049 03 / TSD10501 (no confidence in last line, did not remove EMI shield).
- 54MHz and 24.690MHz oscillators (two of the latter, seems to be for the Samsung chips), there is a 3rd oscillator under the EMI shield that was not viewed.
- ESMT M13S2561616A- 5T / ASK1PO35E 1052
- Linear Technology (LT) 1120 / 3506 / EFE N9096 / e3 (last presumably a date/lot/factory code)
- ATMEL1040 / TINY13A / <delta/triangle symbol> SSU (on reverse side of PCB).
Making it Work
In September 2009, Steven Toth at kernellabs submitted code to the linux kernel mailing list that adds support for the NXP Saa7164 PCIe A/V bridge used by the Hauppauge HVR-2250 card. See instructions at Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2200. Note that the upstream driver support is limited to DVB-T / ATSC / QAM digital TV only
Experimental analog support was released by KernelLabs on July 31, 2010. See here for more details related to installing analog support: KernelLabs saa7164 analog announcement
Development continues at http://www.steventoth.net/blog/products/hvr-2250/
The windows driver and linux firmware extraction scripts are up on http://www.steventoth.net/linux/hvr22xx
Drivers were merged into the kernel in Linux 2.6.32.
