I only just realised that I'm (possibly) supposed to grab a firmware
blob for the TDA10046 decoder, I see the script in Documentation/dvb to
do the dirty work.
dmesg | grep -i tda
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Philips TDA10046H DVB-T)...
DVB: registering frontend 1 (Philips TDA10046H DVB-T)...
tda1004x: found firmware revision 26 -- ok
But I definitely don't have *.fw anywhere on the machine, my question is
how does my card (Compro Videomate DVB-T200) manage to work without the
Does this card have on board eeprom where some others don't? Does the
firmware only add certain extra functionality? Is there a certain level
of firmware onboard, and the driver only needs to upload a version from
file if the onboard version is too low?
Will the firmware extracted from tt_budget_217g.zip do me any good (i.e.
newer) or should I leave it alone?
