Making it Work

Support for this device is patchy. It does not work out-of-the-box on linux version 3.2.0-32. However, support has been provided by the OpenPLI team. For my device, I retrieved the source from Ambrosa's Code and added the device ID to rtl2832u.c and rtl2832u.h. However, the OpenPLI patch to the stock kernel code is reported to support this device. Support may be in later kernels.


The stock firmware in the default tree works fine for this device.


The driver that works with this device is dvb_usb_rtl2832u.
