First, if possible, we would like a good overall image of what the device looks like (Note: do NOT use proprietary images unless you have obtained permission to do so). Next, provide a brief summary of what the device is and by whom it is provided (include wiki links to the card type and the vendor -- and, ideally, after you have finished editing this page, you should add links from those pages back to this one). The last introductory piece of information is the all important indication of whether or not the device is supported under Linux. Here's an example:
The ATSC 115 is supported under Linux since kernel 2.6.24.
Note: The page contents menu will automagically build itself, so you need not worry about it
Discuss the features and facets of the device here. For example:
- PCI interface
- Inputs: Antenna (Composite), Remote and S-Video In
List the hardware ICs and modules used by the device here. For example:
- QT1010 (tuner)
- Intel/Zarlink MT352 (demodulator)
- NXP/Philips SAA7130HL (A/V decoder and PCI Interface)
Use the included code to insert other images if necessary. Add as many high resolution pictures as you can i.e the card, the original box, the remote and, when uploading the files to the wiki, give them detailed specific names. Note: only use images taken by yourself or those 3rd party images for which you have received express written consent (such as from a vendor) that permits their usage. For example:
Provide here, for PCI/PCIe devices, the relevant output of
lspci -vnn or, in the case of USB devices,
lsusb -v . We're particularly interested in the subsystem ID's. To make a code block simply make the first character of each line a space. For example:

Making it Work
Is it supported under Linux? Are there experimental drivers? Does it partially work or identify as another card? (if yes, add this information below)
Is there any firmware specific information for this device? if so, list it here. If your device doesn't require a firmware, simply mention that this is the case.
Provide the details of where the drivers and patches and necessary tools are available.
Sample Kernel Output
Provide the relevant portion of dmesg here. For example:

Remote Control Support
Discuss support for the remote control here.
Provide a link to the vendor's product page here along with any other external link to information that is generally helpful in relation to the device. For example:
Finally, add anything else that you think might be relevant under an appropriate heading.
Very last thing is add a catergory. (Remove the nowiki tags). For example
[[Category:DVB-T PCI Devices]]
