MSI DigiVox mini II V3.0
- This stick is not the same as the MSI DigiVox mini II or MSI DigiVox mini II V2.0 (Vendor site).
- In Germany this device might also be named MSI K-Vox.
On Ubuntu or Debian Lenny
Using a script by Daniel Holm, it is very easy to install the driver on ubuntu.
wget http://www.danielholm.se/sites/default/files/msi.digivox.mini_.II_.V.3-v3.run chmod +x msi.digivox.mini_.II_.V.3-v3.run ./msi.digivox.mini_.II_.V.3-v3.run
Congratulations, your DVB-T stick is now operational (including remote control).
(Also tested and working on Debian Lenny. Thanks!)
On other Linux Distributions
Although not as convenient as above, it should only take a couple of minutes to install the driver manually.
- You need to have make, gcc, etc. installed.
- You need the revision control system 'mercurial' installed.
Compile and Install the Driver
Download version 4.95.0 of the firmware and copy it to your firmware directory.
wget http://www.otit.fi/~crope/v4l-dvb/af9015/af9015_firmware_cutter/firmware_files/4.95.0/dvb-usb-af9015.fw sudo mv dvb-usb-af9015.fw /lib/firmware/
On some distributions, you might have to move the firmware to /lib/firmware/2.6.xx/ where 2.6.xx is the version of your linux kernel.
Now download, compile, and install drivers for AF9015 from Antti Palosaari:
hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015/ cd af9015 make sudo make install
Congratulations, your DVB-T receiver should work now.
Remote Control Setup
If you want to use the IR remote control, you should tell the driver that you have a MSI DigiVox mini II V3.0. The driver can unfortunately not figure that out automatically since many devices have the very same 'lsusb -v'-fingerprint.
For this, you will need to pass the option 'remote=2' to the dvb_usb_af9015 module. Manually, this is done by the command (as root):
rmmod dvb_usb_af9015 modprobe dvb_usb_af9015 remote=2
To permanently store the option, you will need to edit modprobe's configuration file (usually /etc/modprobe.conf) and somewhere add the line:
options dvb_usb_af9015 remote=2
Furthermore, the device MSI DigiVox mini II V3.0 seems to have a hardware bug that causes keystrokes on the remote control to be repeated indefinitely. To circumvent this problem, you need to prevent your machine from recognizing the usb-stick as a keyboard.
echo "options usbhid quirks=0x15a4:0x9016:0x4" >> /etc/modprobe.d/usbhid rmmod usbhid; modprobe usbhid
Congratulations, your remote control should work now.
Seems to be operational, including remote control.
