Pinnacle PCTV 200e
It is currently not supported in the LinuxTV tree, however, drivers do exist (see below).
The PCTV 200e was first presented at CeBIT 2005, and is still available for about EUR 40. It is identical to some other Pinnacle models; the PCTV 260e, the PCTV 60e and the "PCTV DVB-T Pro USB". It comes with a detachable active antenna.
- Microtune MT2060 tuner (i2c addr: 0xC0)
- Zarlink MT352 demodulator (i2c addr: 0x3e)
- Cypress CY7C68013A (FX2LP) USB bridge
The output of lsusb -v provides that that it has a subsystem ID of: 2304:020e
Making it Work
Currently there is no in kernel drivers for this device.
However, experimental support does exist. The following drivers are needed for these devices:
- dvb-usb.ko - pctv200e.ko
Drivers aren't in the official tree yet. So you will have to add them manually. Files and instructions are included in the following file:
The drivers work, but the code itself needs some cleanup and further testing before it can be backported into the offical developement tree. Everyone who wants to help can do so. Just contact the LinuxTV mailing list, or contact the developer directly.
Since the developers of this driver have virtually no time (and aren't using this adapter anymore), no further development is being planned for now. So if you want the driver to be integrated into the official v4l-dvb tree, you are welcome to do it yourself.
Development ToDo List
- handle debug output
- integrate into official v4l tree
- do intensive testing
- support the remote control

Remote Controll Support
IR sensor included on the adapter, but not supported by the driver.
