The AVerMedia AVerTV DVB-T Express X (E568E) is a DVB-T ExpressCard from AVerMedia.

Patch for kernel 2.6.27 and later

The driver is not compatible with kernel 2.6.27 and later. It's been tested with Fedora Core 9 (32 bits) with kernel 2.6.27. It's probably compatible with others distributions and other cards (A808 compatible).

Installer

  • Download and unzip the driver provided by AVerMedia (choose the driver for Linux x86).
  • Execute as root (su or sudo) ./AVERMEDIA-Linux-x86-A808-0.23-beta.sh
  • Choose "expert" installation, and choose a directory (named <DIR> in our case).
  • Finish the installation.

Modify source

  • In <DIR>, you'll find a sub-directory A808-expert-install: cd A808-expert-install
  • In this directory, do cd aver
  • Open "osdep_th.c" with the editor of your choice and replace #include <asm/semaphore.h> with #include <linux/semaphore.h>, then save and quit.
  • Open "osdep.c", and replace #include <asm/semaphore.h> with #include <linux/semaphore.h>, go to line 944, and replace pci_dma_mapping_error(pa) with pci_dma_mapping_error((struct pci_dev *)pci, pa), then save and quit
  • Return to A808-expert-install directory, and execute make. If no problems, you will have two files "300.ko" and "averusb.ko".

Copy drivers

  • Copy "300.ko" and "averusb.ko" to /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/dvb/dvb-usb/ as root
  • Get the firmware, using wget http://www.wi-bw.tfh-wildau.de/~pboettch/home/linux-dvb-firmware/dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw
  • cp dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw /lib/firmware
  • Reload configuration by rebooting your computer.

Test

  • Use Kaffeine (or the software of your choice) to test DVB-T.
