Re: af9015: tuner id:179 not supported, please report!

Hi Bert and Mike,

The information that you have regarding the TDA18218, where can I get my
hands on that? It would be interesting to take a shot at writing the
driver, but I guess I would need some pointers in the right direction.

Would it be possible to get the information from you, or is such
information freely available on the internet? Where should I start
looking?

Best regards,

//Jan

  I just received a usb DVB-T card and have been trying to get it to work
  under Ubuntu 9.10, but to no avail. dmesg shows the following when

  http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=606487page=5 which hints that
  the card may use the TDA18218HK tuner chip which does not seem to be

  Does anyone have any experience regarding this chip and know what to do

  Hi Jan,
 
  As stated in the Ubuntuforums thread, there doesn't seem to be any support 
  for
  this chip at the moment. I don't know how hard it is to code support for a
  specific tuner, but I'm looking into that right now.
 
  Hopefully some more experienced coders will join in writing something 
  usable, as
  I don't think I will be able to do it myself.
 
  Please drop a message if anyone finds something useful.
 
  Best regards,
 
  Bert
 
 The TDA18218 is not currently supported under Linux.  I have the
 information needed to write a driver to support it, but I do not have
 any devices that use it, nor any interest (as of now) to write the
 driver on my own time.
 
 For me, it would not be very difficult to get this done, as I have
 done work to support a similar family of tuners -- TDA18271 /
 TDA18211.  The TDA18218 tuner is not supported by the current driver.
 
 In the past, I would have gone ahead and written a driver for the
 sheer enjoyment of doing so... but nowadays, I actually have other
 projects of a higher priority that need my attention instead.
 
 If, in the future, any commercial entity has interest in seeing this
 tuner silicon supported under Linux, they should contact me -- perhaps
 my desire to write this driver can be increased ;-)
