Making it Work

Firmware

  • 1.2104C:The device does need firmware : dvb-usb-dw2104.fw and dvb-fe-cx24116.fw
  • 4.2104D:The device does need firmware : dvb-usb-dw2104.fw and dvb-fe-ds3000.fw

See the instructions for obtaining the firmware for the dvb-usb-dw2104.fw here [1].

unrar it and copy dvb-usb-dw2104.fw and dvb-fe-cx24116.fw/dvb-fe-ds3000.fw firmware file to /lib/firmware/

OpenELEC firmware collection is also a good source of firmwares and contains all of these.

Drivers

Drivers are included in Linux kernel since 2.6.28.

The autodetection of the demodulator does not work for all versions. You might need to add parameter demod to modprobe when loading the driver depending on the version you have (look at the list above).

1=CX24116 2=STV0903+STV6110 4=STV0903+STB6100

Example: modprobe dvb-usb-dw2102 demod=2
