Making it Work

It is not supported by Linux. The subsystem has two matches, both reference boards: Philips TOUGH DVB-T reference design and Philips EUROPA V3 reference design, which neither work correctly. The reference designs expect different chips then the ones that are present on the board.

When loading the saa7134 module with the card parameter 156 (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR1110r3 DVB-T/Hybrid) with firmware installed (see below), the card seems to work, but fails when scanning DVB channels.

Firmware

If you see the following message in your system log:

tda10048: firmware upload failed.

You have to install the demodulator's firmware in order to let it work.

The card needs firmware for the TDA10048, which is available Here. Just download the ZIP file and the extract.sh and execute Extract.sh. For more information, please see the readme.txt file.

Drivers

The card uses the built-in V4L saa7134 driver, the tda10048 demodulator driver (when using the Hauppauge set-up) and the tda18271 tuner driver (also when using the Hauppauge set-up).

Remote Control Support

The default card configuration doesn't detect the built-in IR transmitter.

External Links

The vendor Zolid doesn't have a website, so there isn't much information available about this card.
