On most modern distributions it will probably work out of the box. You may have to download the firmware but that also depends on your distribution. Just plug it in and see what dmesg on a console says.
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.
