I have this generic USB TV-ATSC, NTSC, QAM tuner/decoder. Tiger direct lists
the brand as "sabrent". These are the products specs I believe
When I plug it in, lsusb tells me
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 05e1:0400 Syntek Semiconductor Co., Ltd
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
The 0400 product ID is unknown in my distro. 05e1 is the manufacturer ID
for "syntek", but I think that syntek just makes the USB interface for the
entire HDTV stick.
when I plug it in, dmesg tells me
usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 1-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice
Windows recognizes the device as "AUVITEK" brand and lists an auvitek audio
and video decoder in the Windows' device manager.
I have Windows 32bit, and Mandriva 2008.1 64 bit. What do I need to do to get
this thing working? I hope it's as simple as recompiling one of the auvitek
drivers with a new USB ID, but I'm not sure.
