Making it Work

This card is working pretty well under Linux with a recent V4L snapshot, or with the patch applied. The tda18271 driver detects the card automatically, although it outputs some cryptical error messages that don't prevent the card from working:

tda18271_read_regs: [1-0060|M] ERROR: i2c_transfer returned: -5
tda18271_ir_cal_init: [1-0060|M] error -5 on line 812

tda18271_write_regs: [1-0060|M] ERROR: idx = 0x5, len = 1, i2c_transfer returned: -5

Firmware

If you see the following message in your system log:

tda10048: firmware upload failed.

You have to install the demodulator's firmware in order to let it work.

The card needs firmware for the TDA10048, which is available Here. Just download the ZIP file and the extract.sh and execute Extract.sh. For more information, please see the readme.txt file.

Drivers

The card uses the built-in V4L saa7134 driver, the tda10048 demodulator driver and the tda18271 tuner driver. The card id to be used with the driver is 173.
