TT-connect CT-3650 CI.jpg

A combined DVB-C and DVB-T USB 2.0 device from TechnoTrend with integrated CI.

Driver support

Both the DVB-C and DVB-T part of the tuner are supported in current kernels. As of kernel 3.2, the CI interface is now also supported and can be used to decrypt pay-TV with the use of a CAM.

Log from initialization on kernel 3.2.5:

Beware that the initialization of the CAM in most cases will fail as seen above ("Invalid PC card inserted") due to the CAM being in sleep-mode. Once an application requests to use the CAM, it will wake up and get initialized automatically. The CI has been tested to work successfully with a DVB-T Viaccess 4.0 CAM (BoxerTV DK branded) and MythTV (v0.24 and v0.25); and AlphaCrypt Classic with MythTV 0.24-0.26. According to the developer of the driver, the CI should also work fine when using VDR for playback.

Many applications for DVB playback currently doesn't support the structure of the combined tuner, eg. with each DVB-C/T tuner having their own frontend devices (/dev/dvb/adaptor0/frontend0 and /dev/dvb/adaptor0/frontend1) while the other devices are shared between the tuners (/dev/dvb/adaptor0/demux0 exists, but there's no demux1). In such cases it might be needed to make a workaround with symbolic links, as mentioned in this mail on the linux-media list.

Wrong

With this setup you will have bandwidth problems with no appropriate warning whatsoever on any log file. Except that video will look horrible.

/:  Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci_hcd/8p, 12M     <-- USB1.1,  slow, don't us
/:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci_hcd/8p, 480M    <-- one bus
    |__ Port 2: Dev 2, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=dvb_usb_ttusb2, 480M <--  1st DVB device, shares bandwidth
    |__ Port 4: Dev 2, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=dvb_usb_ttusb2, 480M <--  2nd DVB device, shares bandwidth

OK

You can solve the above situation by adding a PCI-Express to USB3.0 card:

/:  Bus 04.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 5000M
/:  Bus 03.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=xhci_hcd/2p, 480M    <-- one bus
    |__ Port 2: Dev 2, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=dvb_usb_ttusb2, 480M <--  one DVB device
/:  Bus 02.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ohci_hcd/8p, 12M     <-- USB1.1,  slow, don't use
/:  Bus 01.Port 1: Dev 1, Class=root_hub, Driver=ehci_hcd/8p, 480M    <-- one bus
    |__ Port 4: Dev 2, If 0, Class=vend., Driver=dvb_usb_ttusb2, 480M <--  one DVB device

Rule: One device per bus
