Re: Compro VideoMate U80 DVB-T USB 2.0 High Definition Digital TV Stick

2010-01-07 Thread Jan Hoogenraad

Can you give us the USB ID
(type on the command line: lsusb, and report the output)

The U90 has a RTL2831 in it. More info on the driver on:

I'd be grateful if anyone can tell me if this device is supported yet, 
and if so, any pointers to getting it working.

Hi Jan

USB ID is :  185b-0150  Compro

I built the driver as per the link but the device does not initialise.

Tested using an Ubuntu Studio Karmic installation with two afatech 9015 
USB devices connected ok


Thanks

Re: Compro VideoMate U80 DVB-T USB 2.0 High Definition Digital TV Stick

2010-01-07 Thread Jan Hoogenraad

So: it is a Realtek 2831 device.

Please first check /lib/udev/rules.d/50-udev-default.rules.
There seems to be a generic problem with Karmac there.
Look at http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1327337 which gives 
solution for the problem by installing a new rule:-

/etc/udev/rules.d/50-udev.rules

Under Ubuntu Karmac, I have heard that the anttip/rtl2831u driver works 
 (alas without IR support) with this workaround. Of the 
jhoogenraad/rtl2831-2 I have no confirmation yet.


http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=960113

Which one have you downloaded ?

In the absence of any feedback to my query, I had a look at the driver 
entry for this device in a Win7 system.

It shows as:  Videomate U1xx Digital Series
The driver was written by Realtek and is version 5.55.828.2009
So, I guess there may be a number of devices in this series with the same 
chipset.

Does this ring any bells with anyone?

Hi drappa,
Things do seem quiet, so perhaps a couple of controversial remarks will 
liven it up.


Several months ago I bought a USB dual DVB-T tuner (KWorld PlusTV) and was 
in a similar position to you, just a different model of stick.
With Windows, the job would have been straightforward, as Windows has an 
architecture for adding new USB products. A couple of entries in the 
registry, a driver for the chipset, and you're away.
With Linux, you've a choice of spending 35 hours trying to patch and 
recompile the kernel so that the new device is recognised, or if that sounds 
too onerous, wait 6 to 12 months until it's included in the standard kernel.


While I recognise that I cannot legitimately complain, since Linux is a 
take-it-or-leave-it arrangement where if there's a problem, I should ideally 
volunteer to fix it myself, I still do think that it's bizarre that a 
recompile of the kernel is needed.  I ask myself why it is not possible to 
have a database of devices (like the Windows registry) which can be easily 
updated.  This would allow simple installation of new products which use 
chipsets identical to existing supported products.


[The outcome with my tuner so far after a failed attempt at patching the 
kernel, I waited till 2.6.32 kernel was available, upon which the device was 
recognised, but still can only get one of the two tuners operating.  This 
will likely be the subject of a separate forum thread in the near future.]


Sorry I cannot shed light on your particular model of tuner.

I will conclude by saying incidentally, that I have been a very satisifed 
user of mythTV (with multiple PCI tuners) for the last two and a bit years.
