The Xbox One Digital TV Tuner is a DVB-T/T2/C USB tuner. Note! There are several reports that the driver in kernel 4.16 does not work very well for DVB-T2 reception in Germany. It seems to work ok in UK and Finland at least.

The following components are used on the device

The USB bridge needs firmware. dvb-usb-dib0700-1.20.fw is included in most distributions. The demodulator also needs firmware which is not commonly included. Download it here [2] and place in /lib/firmware.

Remote Control

As the device is originally meant to be connected to the Xbox that has it's own controller there is no remote controller support.
