An ATSC PCI card from pcHDTV.

The HD-5500 is supported under Linux (added to kernel 2.6.18).

Overview/Features

This is the third, and most recent, product offering from pcHDTV.

The card's nomenclature falls slightly out of line from its earlier product offerings (the HD-2000 and HD-3000). It is quite possible that pcHDTV would have liked to have used "HD-5000", but ended going with HD-5500 due to the fact that BBTI/TechniSat had already released a card to market bearing a "HD5000" moniker. Undoubtedly, in using "HD5000", BBTI/TechniSat was in part capitalizing on the prevalent marketing hype for the "LG 5th Gen" demodulator. Nonetheless, its interesting that BBTI choose a nomenclature that is also quite similar to competitor pcHDTV's conventions.

Components Used

  • Conexant CX2388x (a/v decoder & PCI bridge)

Identification

The output of lspci -vn will reveal that the card has a subsystem PCI ID of 7063:5500.
