An ATSC USB device by TechniSat, but marketed in the U.S. by the associate company BBTI.

It is currently not supported under Linux.


This device features a USB 2.0 interface.

Origin of the Device's Name

TechniSat never listed this device on their own website's product pages. Rather, one finds information about this ATSC device strictly on the BBTI website (TechniSat's source for North American sales and distribution).

Previous ATSC products manufactured by TechniSat, but marketed by BBTI, retained the naming scheme given to them by their original reference device designer, B2C2; as opposed to being marketed by way of TechinSat's "*Stars" product lineup nomenclature. With the HD5000 products, BBTI has evidently now adopted the TechniSat convention into part of the device names.

Components Used

An examination of the device's internals reveals that the PCB contains:
Top side

  • LG TDVS-H064F demodulator (P1 or U2)
  • Atmel PLD: ATF750C (U8)
  • clock: CTS09-CB3 45M00000 (U23)
  • Flexcop-IIB MM5HG-000 (U1)
  • MKAL 5298 (U22)
  • 62AE N12A (U7) (looks like regulator)
  • ?? (U21)
  • ?? (U20)
  • There's an unpopulated jumper that appears to lead to U11; not checked.

Back side

  • ISSI IS61LV256-15TL (U3)
  • ATMEL616 24C08AN (U4)
  • PLX NET2282-A833PC (U9)
  • ATMEL 542 25640AN (U11)
  • C77331 65T C12E (U13)


Output of lsusb -v reveals that it has a subsystem ID of 13d0:2282.

Making it Work

Given that its components are near identical to its AirStar-HD5000-PCI counterpart, adding support for this device should probably not be too difficult, however, development of a driver for the USB bridge will be required.
