Revision as of 06:36, 17 September 2007

A DVB-T USB device from TerraTec.

subsystem ID: 005a:0ccd

features two tuners, and have two antennas. You'll have adapter0 and adapter1 in /dev/dvb, which you can use separately.

The "Diversity" option is a hardware based feature that allows for the device's two receivers to be configured in a combined use mode to achieve better reception on a single channel. The diversity feature of the DiBcom demodulators is currently not implemented in the Linux-DVB drivers, so only the dual tuner configuration is presently supported on such devices [1].

User experiences

Date: 22.8. 2007

Distro: Ubuntu Feisty, AMD64

Kernel: 2.6.20-16-generic

The drivers shipping with Feisty are not recent enough, so downloaded & compiled & installed the current v4l-dvb distribution ([2] - you need to install & use Mercurial to fetch the source).

(You can also download an archive through Mercurial's web interface )

Downloaded the new dvb-usb-dib0700-03-pre1.fw firmware from [3] & copied it to /lib/firmware

(note: the following is likely dated by now)

openSUSE 10.2 (i586) Kernel

Compiling the driver vv4.tgz from http://www.chez.com/treza/mt2266.htm

(on my system a netdevice.h was needed in /lib/modules/

Copying the firmware dvb-usb-dib0700-01.fw to /lib/firmware

Reboot, connect the stick, kaffeine, enjoy.
