Mac DVB-T stick Media-Tech MT4170

Sun Oct 20, 2013 7:32 pm

I partially tested this DVB-T tuner on my Raspberry Pi with Raspbian. It should be connected through powered USB hub and it looks this tuner could work. But not out-of-box, you will need add into file /etc/modules item "smsdvb" and load into directory /lib/firmware these to files: "dvb_nova_12mhz_b0.inp" and "isdbt_nova_12mhz_b0.inp". The firmware files could be downloaded here http://ulozto.net/xgooc34M/mt4170-linux-fw-zip .
DVB-T found successfully our programs. I made some testings on Me-TV but you can see how not powerful Pi is.
