Pinnacle PCTV Hybrid Pro Card (310c)

Used ICs

  • xc3028ACQ
  • conexant cx23880
  • zl10353 at least in my device (maybe also mt352?)




  • cx88

this requires firmware_pinnacle.tgz from



the dvb-t demodulator is able to detect channels, the data transfer itself doesn't work yet.


got one step further with it, there's a problem with the PCI subsystem and resource allocation, it's documented in the discussion tab how to solve it.. this brings development one step further to get DVB-T work soon


there's some experimental code in

analogue TV seems to work, without audio at the moment.


[unplug the device]
$ make
$ make install
[plug in the device]
fire up mplayer, xawtv or tvtime
