Revision as of 16:56, 27 February 2007

a SAA7146-based DVB-C PCI Card produced and sold by TerraTec. Uses the Philips CU1216 tuner module, well-supported by the Linux driver. CI-Interface is assembled on some cards, but not yet supported.

NOTE: The newest version of these cards is not yet supported. If "lspci -v" tells you exactly "Subsystem: TERRATEC Electronic GmbH Unknown device 1176", you have one of these. However, a working patch is available for those who aren't afraid of compiling.[1][2]

This card is able to deliver the full MPEG2 Transport Stream to the host.

Past problems

These problems are (presumed) fixed in the newest versions of the driver.

Distorted transmission

The driver had problems (distorded transmission) with some multiplexes, but they were fixed 2005-03-08, confirmed by at least two users.

Problems in the Berlin cable network with kernel 2.6.11.10

The Linux driver in Kernel 2.6.11.10 (dated 16-May-2005 at kernel.org) does not lock on all multiplexes of the Berlin cable network (Telecolumbus frequency allocation), e.g. this one locks immediately:

 10 Das Erste:410000000:INVERSION_AUTO:6900000:FEC_NONE:QAM_64:101:102:28106
 10 Das Erste: f 410000000, s 6900000, i 2, fec 0, qam 3, v 0x65, a 0x66
status 00 | signal a1a1 | snr b9b9 | ber 000af3d4 | unc ffffffff |

status 1f | signal dfdf | snr dddd | ber 000af3d4 | unc 00000000 | FE_HAS_LOCK

and this one not at all:
