DVB-T stick with AF9015

Fri Jun 01, 2012 9:09 pm

I'm trying to install DVB-T stick with AF9015 to be used with w_scan (using Debian image).
http://elinux.org/RPi_VerifiedPeripherals says it should work.
Can somebody who managed to install it describe what needs to be done in order to make it work?

I was also trying to add V4L-DVB to the Debian image.
But the compilation always ends with some error.

Any hint appreciated.

Thanks.

Finally I managed to make it work.
I had to compile a new kernel with dvb support.

Credits also go to Mark.

Hello:

I also have a af9015 stick and i'm new with R.PI.
¿Can you tell me how to compile a kernel with dvb support?
Thanks

RPi Kernel Compilation
http://elinux.org/Rpi_kernel_compilation

Before compilation enable at least the following modules (menuconfig):
<M> DVB for Linux
[*] Load and attach frontend and tuner driver modules as needed
[*] DVB/ATSC adapters --->
<M> Support for various USB DVB devices
<M> Terratec CinergyT2/qanu USB 2.0 DVB-T receiver
<M> Afatech AF9015 DVB-T USB2.0 support

Sorry if it's not relevant here.

I've tried to install my stick with AF9015 chipset successfully under Raspbmc. In addition to having DVB support kernel (Raspbmc already has it) you'll need a firmware from here: http://www.otit.fi/~crope/v4l-dvb/af901 ... es/4.95.0/ Place this file to /lib/firmware directory. Several pages say you don't need firmware for this chipset because of kernel support (firmware is already compiled into the kernel?) but by looking at dmesg you can see an error message about seraching for a firmware file mentioned above.

I could run tvheadend and watch only one channel. But no more. Something is wrong with my system (stick/power supply/DVB-T coverage) so it's not working properly but the stick was recognized by kernel and tvheadend.
