Archived:AVerMedia AVerTV Hybrid+FM Cardbus (E506R)-V4L
AVerMedia TV+FM CardBus E506R
AVermedia released their card with binary only driver for Mandriva and FC3/4. For ancient kernels of course. Due to licensing from chip vendor and the fact that AVerMedia is a proud GPL violator -- they do not bother publishing source for their driver that is actually based on V4L.
Looking inside the card we can see that it is:
- Philips SAA7135HL PCI Audio/Video Broadcast Decoder
- Xceive XC3028 Silicon Tuner
- Zarlink MT352 Digital Terrestrial TV Demodulator
Analogue TV seems to work with PAL-BG (including audio)
Since 14. May 2007 FM radio is also supported.
There's some experimental code in
(the setup requires root privileges, if you want to install it with debian/ubuntu add a sudo infront of each command, $ is the sign for a shell, it's not part of the command)
$ cd /lib/firmware $ wget http://mcentral.de/firmware/firmware_pinnacle.tgz $ tar xvzf firmware_pinnacle.tgz $ cd /tmp $ hg clone http://mcentral.de/hg/~mrec/v4l-dvb-experimental $ cd v4l-dvb-experimental/v4l $ make $ make install - reboot here - - plug in the device -
For radio you need to install xawtv, it contains a tool called "radio" You also need to pipe audio manually from the device to the soundcard, that for you can use a script called usbaudio_setup.sh which you can find in v4l-dvb-experimental/v4l/scripts, it will also work with pci devices. This script generates a sox command for example
Using command: sox -r 48000 -w -c 2 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp
I know this command generates some noise when listening to FM radio, you should read the sox manpage to improve the choppy sound.
in that case
cat /dev/dsp1 > /dev/dsp
delivers the best quality, just play around with it and try to fix this wiki site please.
tvtime might show up a blue window only, so disable signal detection and do a manual scan if you want to use it.
you can also try to use mplayer: mplayer tv:// -tv driver=v4l2 (tuning can be done with [h] and [k]

You have to do 'make unload' before plug out the device, otherwise it crashes the kernel.
