I read that the PCTV HD Pro Stick was supported with the latest Experimental build based on the em2883 chipset.  I took the risk and went with the Ultimate instead of the Pro.

You wont find native support for this in any Linux Distribution's native kernel anytime soon.

Your best bet, in this case, is to look at Markus' experimental repository.  I don't think that he has support for this exact device yet, but he does have most of the pieces required.

#1) You need em2880-dvb support, which is not yet in the master v4l-dvb development branch

#2) (I think) you'll need an xc5000 driver, also not yet merged into the v4l-dvb master branch.

You might be able to assemble the right pieces of code together, but I don't know where you'll find it all at this time.

Given a few months (or weeks, in a perfect world) time, the situation may become clearer.

Good Luck,

Mike Krufky
