An analogue PCI card from 3Dfx.

It is supported under Linux.

Note: The card was also made available on an OEM basis as the "STB TV FM PCI"; Gateway also denoted the STB OEM by P/N 6000704


The card falls under the categorization as a Bttv devices (bt848, bt878) device. You will need a computer with at least 1.5MHZ CPU to get it working well in MythTV given, being a software based encoding device, the capture encoding will suck a whole lotta CPU cycles at NTSC 720x480.

  • Composite in
  • SVideo in (STB OEM only)
  • FM radio (STB OEM only)

Components Used

  • Temic 4032FY5 (tuner module) ... the STB OEM used either a Temic API or Philips FM1236/F (see [1] and [2])
  • STM TEA6420 (audio switch)
  • Philips TDA9850 (audio decoder)
  • STM TDA7432D (audio processor)
  • Conexant BT878A (A/V decoder)

Making it work

This is one of those devices that should work, however, you may need to play with the bttv and snd-bt87x module options to be successful.
