Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T USB
A USB 1.1 DVB-T device designed by TechnoTrend and sold by Hauppauge. Based on a Texas Instruments DSP that remultiplexes the stream into a TechnoTrend-proprietary USB packet format and sends it as Isochronous USB Stream over the USB Bus.
Due to the limited USB 1.1 Bus Bandwidth of about 12MBit only selected PIDs can get transferred over the USB Bus to the Host. Some High-Bandwidth Transponders don't work, HDTV receiption is not possible.
Since May 2005 (or so) there's a new Nova-T USB2 which works! (see below)
Since Oct 2006 (or so) there's a new Nova-T USB2 which does not work! (see below)
Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T USB2 - a new high speed USB2 version that works with the latest dvb-utils (DiBcom 3000P) and Linux 2.6.12rc3 kernel. Ive got it going on Slackware, so it must be easy elsewhere. Got the info via http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV_Nova-T_USB2
Newer Version Oct. 2006
The newest WinTV NOVA-T USB2 has a different USB ID. The former devices had 9300 & 9301 (for cold and warm state) and the new devices have 7050 & perhaps 7051. They won't work with the existing driver, because device detection in the driver looks for 9300 or 9301.
