Components Used

Identification

lsusb:

Bus 003 Device 002: ID 9022:d660 TeVii Technology Ltd.

Linux support

Supported by the vanilla kernel and the s2-liplianin v4l branch.

This works for me on a Debian Squeeze (2.6.32):

apt-get install linux-headers-`uname -r` build-essential
mkdir /usr/local/src/dvb
cd /usr/local/src/dvb
wget http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin/archive/tip.zip
unzip s2-liplianin-0b7d3cc65161.zip 
cd s2-liplianin-0b7d3cc65161
make CONFIG_DVB_FIREDTV:=n
make install

The firmware is downloaded from the Ubuntu forums (External Links), there are lots of different versions. This works for me:

As per the Tevii S480 (two S660s on one PCIe card, plus onboard USB controller - http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/TeVii_S480 ), the S660 as of Ubuntu 11.10/Kernel 3.0.x, this is now supported as part of the mainline Kernel, so no drivers require compilation. (Tested by Matthew Collier November 2011 on Astra 28.2E (and many others on the Myth User Mailing List - http://www.gossamer-threads.com/lists/mythtv/ ))

Caution: This device is unreliable when doing DiSEqC switching (as reported in numerous threads on the Internet and experienced by myself) - Steltek 21:30, 27 October 2012 (CEST)

Clone Devices

Compro Videomate S900 appears to be a clone of the TeVii S660.

I have not attempted to get the Compro Videomate S900 working under Linux yet but it does work under Windows using the TeVii S660 drivers. I will update this page when I get a chance to test. czuk 11:20, 10 June 2013 (BST)
