Making it work

Mythbuntu 10.04 plus latest V4L-DVB drivers as per [1]

NOTE: This card has not been working in 10.10, in fact it is not working in 10.04 either. There are some reports of people making it work by switching to different kernels, different driver, different firmware, etc, but as far as working is concerned this does not constitute a stable state.

There are no consistent reports of this card working under any kernel, so unless an accurate HOWTO with detailed and exact versions are performed, this card can be regarded as "unstable".

Remote Control Support

I (Gregoryo) have had no success with the remote, but there is hope from dmesg:

[   22.263721] input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0e.0/0000:02:0a.2/usb2/2-1/input/input5
user@host:~$ cat /proc/bus/input/devices
I: Bus=0003 Vendor=0413 Product=6a04 Version=0200
N: Name="IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver"
P: Phys=usb-0000:02:0a.2-1/ir0
S: Sysfs=/devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:0e.0/0000:02:0a.2/usb2/2-1/input/input5
U: Uniq=
H: Handlers=kbd event5
B: EV=3
B: KEY=108fc310 2802891 0 0 0 0 118000 200180 4803 e1680 0 100000 ffe

So I've been using /dev/input/event5 in my tests. I have tried using evtest, mode2, and irw to no avail. I get no indication of any signal coming from the remote. Am I missing a kernel driver module?
