Do you have a working Windows installation ?

If it is the case you could perform a USB Snopping

The sequence is :

  • Download and launch USBSnoop 1.8 : http://benoit.papillault.free.fr/usbsnoop/index.php.en
  • Connect the USB tuner
  • Check which driver correspond to the USB tuner ( "Present" = "Yes" column )
  • Unplug the USB tuner
  • Disconnect the aerial.
  • Click on "Install" in USBSnoop for the driver corresponding to DVB tuner
  • Replug the USB tuner
  • Launch the TV app.
  • Select 2 or 3 different channels ( there is no picture as there is no antenna ) with both tuners.
  • Unplug the USB tuner
  • Zip the logfile
  • Post it. I'll compare it with the Pinnacle' snooping.

Where do i have to post it ? Also .. the led on the stick doesn't go on when i have the filter installed, yet dvbdream is able to tune and decode channels .. so i think the led isn't very important. BTW when in windows i don't insert the driver cd but let is use windows update.. it get installed as a HP DVB-T Tuner. maybe that helps --Waldo 15:30, 13 December 2007 (CET)



The HP device has probably the same USB IDs as yours.

Please send me the compressed snooping file at treza@chez.com

(Record without the antenna. When pictures are transmitted, the file becomes instantly huge ;-)

Okay I've got it all figured out now ... this is a YUAN PD870 device ... the fact that windows wanted to install the drivers for an HP dvb device, probably means that HP also rebranded this device. If you want to know more , this is the link to the YUAN TECH page : http://www.yuan.com.tw/en/products/tuner/productscontent2.htm
