Introduction

LifeView's FlyTV Platinum cards have the Phillips SAA7135 chip with a global tuner that supports the NTSC, PAL BG/DK/I, and SECAM LL' video standards. Audio support includes NiCAM, A2, BTSC/MTS, and EIA-J.

There are several variants. These have the tda8275 and tda8290 tuner chips:

  • the FlyTV Low Profile FM card (shown in picture)
  • the FlyTV Platinum35 FM full size card (there's also a non-FM variant)
  • the FlyTV Platinum Mini is shipped with a number of laptops

Support under Linux appears to be good, thanks to patches submitted by Peter Misses to the 2.6.12 kernel.

The more recent laptop version has a different tuner (add details here if you have them):

  • the FlyTV Platinum Mini2

This card is also supported.

Identification

The FlyTV Platinum Low Profile FM card is part number 701030455530, as shown on the back sticker, PCB LR304, subsystem 5168:0304, available for instance from HP. The card includes the mdt2005es-g and 4052bt chips.

The FlyTV Platinum Gold is part number 701030452510. It also appears to be low profile.

The full-size FlyTV Platinum35 FM card is part number 701021405530, PCB LR214WF, subsystem: 5168:0214. The card includes the SA630D (switch to bring TV or FM Radio into tuner), mdt2005, and hef4052 chips. The non-FM variant is part number 701021401060.

The FlyTV Platinum Mini is part number 701021405530, PCB LR212 or LR315, subsystem 5168:1212.

If you have a variant, please add your information here.

Card detection

The FlyTV Platinum LP FM card should be autodetected as number 54 in the saa7134 cardlist:

saa7133[0]: subsystem: 5168:0304, board: LifeView FlyTV Platinum FM / Gold [card=54,autodetected]
saa7133[0]: board init: gpio is 31400

The FlyTV Platinum35 FM card should also be autodetected as number 54 in the saa7134 cardlist:

saa7133[0]: subsystem: 5168:0214, board: LifeView FlyTV Platinum FM [card=54,autodetected]
saa7133[0]: board init: gpio is 31c00
.
tuner 0-004b: tuner: type set to tda8290+75

The FlyTV Platinum Mini card should also be autodetected as number 54 in the saa7134 cardlist:

saa7133[0]: subsystem: 5168:0212, board: LifeView FlyTV Platinum Mini [card=54,autodetected]
saa7133[0]: board init: gpio is 10400
