Driver Installation

By default on Ubuntu 8.04 or any 2.6.24 kernel the driver for the TV tuner is not supplied and must be installed separately. If you plug in the TV tuner without the driver installed only the IR sensor for the remote will be detected. dmesg output:

input: Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Gold as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:13.5/usb6/6-7/6-7:1.1/input/input7
input,hidraw0: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle Gold] on usb-0000:00:13.5-7

To install the driver you will need your kernel headers and mercurial installed, kernel headers and mercurial can be installed under Ubuntu by running

sudo apt-get install linux-headers-generic mercurial

To install the driver enter the following commands into a terminal

1) hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015-mxl500x
2) cd af9015-mxl500x/
3) make
4) sudo make install
5) wget http://www.otit.fi/~crope/v4l-dvb/af9015/af9015_firmware_cutter/firmware_files/4.95.0/dvb-usb-af9015.fw
6) sudo mv dvb-usb-af9015.fw /lib/firmware/

Your TV tuner's driver is installed now, to load the driver either run sudo modprobe dvb_usb_af9015 or reconnect you TV tuner. You can check that the driver is loaded correctly by running dmesg in a terminal, your out put should be similar to this:
