  • Coming soon

Used ICs

  • ULi M9206
  • TDA 10046A (2 of them)
  • TDA 8275a (2 of them)


  • dvb-usb-m920x + patch by Nick Andrew
  • tda1004x
  • tda827x


Not presently working.

The device is recognised and two tuners and two demodulators are attached. However, nothing can be tuned.

Technical Details

The M9206 chip handles two demodulators and two tuners.

The demodulators are located at i2c addresses 0x10 and 0x16.

The tuners are located at i2c addresses 0xc0 and 0xc2.

Also, the device is probed twice, so it ends up as 4 adapters: /dev/dvb/adapter0 .. adapter3.

The remote control also doesn't work. The "rc_state" values differ: the m920x driver expects 0x80, 0x93, 0x92, 0x91 only, but the device returns 0x80, 0x88, 0x99 only. The "rc_key" value returned by the device is always 0x00 which leads me to believe that the remote control is being initialised wrongly.

People who own such a device

Feel free to add yourself here, testers will always be needed!
