The HVR-4000 and Remote

A hybrid DVB-S2 PCI card from Hauppauge.

It is currently not supported under Linux. However, experimental support for some of the device's features is available (see below for details).

Overview/Features

Quad-mode TV tuner featuring DVB-S2 HDTV, DVB-S, DVB-T, analogue PAL/SECAM cable TV, FM radio reception (not supported yet), plus S-Video, Composite and stereo audio inputs for A/V capture, all in one card!

DiSEqC 1.0 and 1.2 supported with Linux drivers.

Note: DVB-T and DVB-S/S2 cannot be used simultaneously due to a hardware limitation, but you can easily switch from one to the other.

Included: IR remote control, batteries, and remote control receiver. FM radio antenna. S-Video/Composite adapter (to allow a Composite RCA yellow phono to be connected to the S-Video input socket).

Sockets: FM, TV, SAT, S-VIDEO IN, LINE IN, IR.

No CI.

Components Used

  • Conexant CX24116 (demodulator)
  • Conexant CX24118A (demodulator)
  • Conexant CX23880 (A/V decoder & PCI bridge)

Making it Work

Firmware

For a discussion of the different firmware versions, see http://allrussian.info/thread.php?threadid=98587.

CX24116 firmware version: 1.20.79.0, size: 32522 bytes, md5sum: 417cafd3b10e207e1dba9a03ad63e405
CX24116 firmware version: 1.22.82.0, size: 32501 bytes, md5sum: b728b5d635393a4081e87d30d87a7632
CX24116 firmware version: 1.23.86.1, size: 32674 bytes, md5sum: dd8dfdfca6b72462d9db8032f78631c8

One could use the script provided from wget-fw.sh to fetch the firmware for us. Basically what it does is :

1) Fetch an archive :

wget ftp://167.206.143.11/outgoing/Oxford/88x_2_119_25023_WHQL.zip

2) Decompress what's needed :

unzip -jo 88x_2_119_25023_WHQL.zip Driver88/hcw88bda.sys

3) Extract the firmware (v1.20.79.0) and put it in the right place :

sudo dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=/lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.20.79.0.fw skip=81768 bs=1 count=32522
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.20.79.0.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw
  Ubuntu: Place file in /lib/firmware
  Debian: Place file in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/

For slightly newer firmware (v1.22.82.0) using drivers from Hauppauge

1) Download the driver archive :

wget http://www.wintvcd.co.uk/drivers/88x_2_122_26109_WHQL.zip

2) Decompress the .sys file :

unzip -jo 88x_2_122_26109_WHQL.zip Driver88/hcw88bda.sys

3) Extract the firmware and put it in the firmware directory :

sudo dd if=hcw88bda.sys of=/lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.22.82.0.fw skip=75504 bs=1 count=32501
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.22.82.0.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw

Firmware v1.23.86.1 is available with the TeVii S460 Linux driver at http://tevii.com/support.html. (But what's with the proprietary RAR archive format? Geez...)

wget http://tevii.com/Tevii_linuxdriver_0815.rar
sudo apt-get install unrar-free
unrar Tevii_linuxdriver_0815.rar
sudo cp tevii_linuxdriver_0815/fw/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.23.86.1.fw
sudo ln -s /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116-1.23.86.1.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-cx24116.fw

Drivers

There are currently no in kernel drivers for this card.

Note: If someone wants to provide a brief synopsis of the driver tale of woe, outlining why there isn't a greater level of support, then do so here ... or just read here

However, experimental support does exist, provided by the four different drivers listed below.

Single Frontend (SFE) Driver

This allows either DVB-T or DVB-S support (one at a time, switchable with a module parameter). A way is also provided to enable DVB-S2 support.

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
wget http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/v4l-dvb-hg-sfe-latest.diff
patch -d v4l-dvb -p1 < v4l-dvb-hg-sfe-latest.diff
cd v4l-dvb && make && make install && reboot 
Note: The last revision I know of that the patches apply cleanly to is 127f67dea087, so you'll probably have to check the repository out this way:
hg clone -r 127f67dea087 http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb 

--Growlizing 13:10, 10 April 2008 (CEST)

This didn't work for me with Mercurial 0.9.1: I got the message "abort: clone by revision not supported yet for remote repositories". Uninstalling the distribution version, then downloading and make install-ing 1.0.2 fixed it. Doesn't build against Linux 2.6.26.2, though. Bloop 20:18, 20 August 2008 (CEST)


See: http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/ for details of how to enable DVB-T or DVB-S2 (DVB-S is the default at the moment). DVB-S/S2 vs. DVB-T is set with a kernel module parameter called "frontend". The DVB-S2 parameters (modfec, rolloff and pilot) are set using sysctl commands.

Multifrontend (MFE) driver

These drivers give you the ability to have multi frontend on the HVR4000. (ie DVB-S and DVB-T tuners, or even the triple-play DVB-S/S2 + DVB-T, see below).

In the multifrontend driver, DVB-T and DVB-S are supported within the current 3.2 API and so it is compatible with current applications. In addition an extension mode can be enabled which will allow modified applications to use the DVB-S2 features. In this mode the values of 3 additional parameters required for DVB-S2 (modulation, rolloff, pilot) are stored in some unused variables and FE_GET_INFO and FE_GET_FRONTEND ioctls are wrapped with new functions dvb_get_info and dvb_get_frontend which get and set the 3 new variables in addition to the normal function behaviour.

DVB-S/S2 then appears at /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0 and DVB-T appears at /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1.

See: http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb
wget http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/v4l-dvb-hg-mfe-latest.diff
patch -d v4l-dvb -p1 < v4l-dvb-hg-mfe-latest.diff
cd v4l-dvb && make && make install && reboot 
Note: As above, the latest diff for Multifrontend is against a version of V4L that is not the latest. You will need to use:
hg clone -r 1abbd650fe07 http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb

Tuning DVB-S and DVB-S2 channels can be done with szap-meow from http://dev.kewl.org/hauppauge/experimental/szap-meow.tgz. But you probably need to update the parameters in the supplied configuration files -- they have changed. See http://www.lyngsat.com/hd.

Kaffeine handles multiple frontends well without modification -- they appear in the DVB settings as "DVB Device 0:0" (=/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0, i.e. DVB-S) and "DVB Device 0:1" (=/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1, i.e. DVB-T). Both devices can be configured and tuned in the application, and Kaffeine will switch to the correct one each time you change the channel. DiSEqC 1.2 is supported too. Kaffeine will display HDTV delivered over DVB-S, e.g. BBC HD, see Kaffeine.

Most programs such as MythTV don't know about multiple frontends yet. You can only use one at a time, but the following allows you to swap between them without having to load the modules in differently:

mkdir /dev/dvb/adapter1
ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/frontend0
ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/net1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/net0
ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/dvr0
ln -s /dev/dvb/adapter0/demux1 /dev/dvb/adapter1/demux0

Multiproto driver

The wiki in german languagedescribes what has to be done in order to compile "standard" multiproto driver.
Unfortunately at the date of writing, there is no support for our beloved card, so one should fetch
the patch from linuxtv mailing list which you should apply to the tree before compiling the driver. I haven't tested the patch which adds the multi frontend support but it's certainly a way to follow :-)

After having applied the patch, one could follow the first link of this section to have a VDR with full DVB-S2 support!!!

UPDATE 1st Aug 2008: Igor Liplianin has created another repository containing multiproto code and szap2 at http://liplianindvb.sourceforge.net/hg/, reported to be working with the HVR-4000. See http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2008-July/027514.html. This appears to be similar to the V4L/DVB staging development repository at http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/ but with the addition of multiproto code.

S2API Driver

Support for the HVR4000 DVB-S/S2 is available in the S2API tree. Patches implementing the multifrontend support (enabling DVB-S/S2 and DVB-T) have also been created.

Sound driver

Alsa driver: cx88_alsa.

To make sure the sound card in the HVR-4000 does not grab card index 0 (instead of your motherboard or discrete sound card) add the following to /etc/modprobe.d/alsa-base (or wherever your distro sets alsa kernel module options):

# Prevent abnormal drivers from grabbing index 0
options cx88_alsa index=-2

Audio/Video capture

Can anyone describe how to do this?

Analogue TV and Teletext Receiver

Does anyone have any info about Linux support?

Note: I have latest http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb with mythtv working with analogue TV. You add it as a normal V4L capture card in mythtv. You need this patch to make inital tuning (When you press "Watch TV") in mythtv work: http://svn.mythtv.org/trac/ticket/5744, without it you need to change channel before you see picture instead of snow. Scanning for channels also works. Set audiorate to 48000 to get good sound (in capturecard setup and also in playback groups). Anders 11:40, 26 September 2008 (CEST)

FM Radio Receiver

Does anyone have any info about Linux support?

Remote Control Support

When you have installed the drivers check dmesg/logs and you'll find a line like:

input: CX88 IR (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR4000 as /class/input/inputX

You can run lirc for example like: lircd --driver=dev/input --device=/dev/input/eventX (replace X with what it finds in the dmesg)

  Debian: edit /etc/lirc/hardware.conf
  DRIVER="dev/input"
  DEVICE="/dev/input/eventX"

/etc/lirc/lircd.conf (Works)
