Making it Work

Not fully supported; DVB-T (merged) and DVB-C (experimental patch) should work with the latest Linux-kernel, modules and firmware(s).


cd ~
mkdir get_dvb_firmware
cd get_dvb_firmware
wget https://raw.github.com/torvalds/linux/master/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware
chmod a+x get_dvb_firmware
./get_dvb_firmware si2165
sudo cp dvb-demod-si2165.fw /lib/firmware/
sudo depmod -a


A Linux 3.16 or higher kernel is recommended, because this provides fixes for some required modules.

DVB-C support hasn't been merged yet. There is however a patch (status: not updated for current branch) provided by zzam that should add DVB-C support.

An alternative patch provided by francoism90 for Linux 4.2 is available on his Github.

Switch modes (DVB-C/DVB-T)

Since it is a hybrid card, it may be necessary to select the correct DVB-source:

# dvb-fe-tool --adapter=1 --frontend=0 --set-delsys=DVB-C
