The HD-3000 is well supported under Linux (added to kernel 2.6.12).
Single RF input. The card supports ATSC, digital cable and NTSC. The card also has A/V inputs.
- Thomson DTT7011 NIM
- Oren or51132 (digital demodulator)
- Conexant CX2388x (A/V decoder and PCI bridge)
The output of lspci -vn will reveal that the card has a subsystem PCI ID of 7063:3000.
Making it Work
This card requires a firmware file (dvb-fe-or51132-vsb.fw and/or dvb-fe-or51132-qam.fw) for the demodulator. You only need both if you wish to allow the driver access to both modes (8-VSB and 64/256-QAM) of operation (the driver will upload the appropriate firmware to the card as needed). These files can be obtained several different ways:
- from the LinuxTV downloads section
- using the get_dvb_firmware perl script included with kernel sources:
# cd /[kernel source directory]/Documentation/dvb/ # perl get_dvb_firmware or5132_qam # perl get_dvb_firmware or5132_vsb
- or from the pcHDTV downloads page
Whatever method you choose (you'll get the same files regardless of the source), once the download is complete, place a copy of the firmware files in your /lib/firmware directory. (This directory may differ with some distros; consult your distro's documentation for the appropriate location).
Just use the in-kernel drivers (any kernel >2.6.12 should have the drivers included and thereby provide native support for the card), or compile your own by following the How to Obtain, Build and Install V4L-DVB Device Drivers instructions.
