A DVB-T USB device from Hauppauge.

Note: Currently, the Nova-T Stick (70009) is known to suffer from I2C errors. Updating to current Hg drivers and using new firmware should cure this.

  • Dibcom DiB7700 DVB-T demodulator & USB 2.0 controller
  • IR receiver

Making it work


You will need the dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw firmware file in /lib/firmware or the relevant place for your distribution.

For devices with box number 293 and device number 70009 the kernel may require firmware version dvb-usb-dib0700-01.fw. Rename the firmware linked above or put a link. Seems to work fine.


Status on 11 August 2007

Just use Mercurial by following the How_to_install_DVB_device_drivers instructions.

Sample kernel output

This is for the 70001 version, using the driver in Linux

usb 1-10: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 8

Remote control support

Supported in v4l-dvb as of 18 August 2007. The 70001 version has an IR sensor, and the 70009 version is listed by Wikipedia as having one. It works with Hauppauge's 45-button remote control and will handle signals from similar remote controls.

If you have problems with a flood of "unknown key" messages in the kernel log, you'll also need this patch (it is not cleanly applicable to recent trees, but it is an easy one-liner to do by hand).

Note: The log-flood patch should currently be regarded as a temporary workaround.
