DVB-T support

Postby bay » Fri Dec 14, 2012 3:41 pm

Interested by DVB-T , could get af9015 based, and one other (siano)
usb adapters running.
http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB-T_USB_Devices

Have a rooted system,
with "Root Explorer" installed (or know how, using shell)

Take attachement.

Create a /system/modules folder
put "/modules/media" folder at /system/modules/media
Or other place but you have to reedit "setup-dvb" content

Put "firmware" files under /etc/firmware

Put "setup-dvb" under /system/xbin with right permissions ("execute" rights).

get DVB-T application, and install:
File droidtv.apk found under folder: droidtv/market/
from https://github.com/Elbandi/droidtv /version with external player try MxPlayer or Vplayer
or https://github.com/chrulri/droidtv
(or compile version you are interested from "network" branches )

Connect DVB-T Stick.

Open a terminal
Type: su /to get root privileges
Type: setup-dvb / to load modules and create folders, links in /dev
Alternativly for experts: copy the content of "setup-dvb" in file /etc/install-recovery.sh (create the file if needed) to have the system setup during boot.
Type: lsmod /to check that modules have been loaded
Type: dmesg /to check that af9015 based stick (or siano) is recognised, the firmware is loaded,..
You can also check that /dev/dvb0.dvr0 interface is created as consequence of stick recognition.

Run tv application and enjoy it .
You do not have the required permissions to view the files attached to this post.

I too am having a lot of trouble setting this up.

When I run setup-dvb I just get a whole lot of permission errors.

A bit more info would be greatly appreciated.

You have to have root enabled.
Using "Root Explorer" application put

Drivers in:
/system/modules/media/

Firmware files in:
/etc/firmware

"setup-dvb" file in:
/system/xbin /with execute enabled

Go in terminal
Type: su / to get root permissions
Type: setup-dvb / to load modules and create folders in /dev

then run DVB-T application…..

This program is merely a stream server (DVBlast), you must use some other player for video playback, for example vlc, but unfortunately I do not know the exact syntax.
Server sends the stream to 127.0.0.1:1555.

It looks that some kernels does not have the right setup eg latest KIZS kernel trigger this message.
"unable to chmod dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0: no such file or directory"

However you can use the nice stable kernel in the following link:

Same problem with either that kernel or the default Finless Bob 1.6 kernel. Any ideas?

Has anyone tried this with a Playstation 3 Play TV?

Top message has been updated:
make sure you connect dvb-t stick 1st before typing "setup-dvb"
and check that it is recognized and firmware loaded typing "dmesg" in terminal.

For people having "special" fw you can use the nice stable kernel from KIZS in the following link:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=718&start=60#p4512

Using method documented at:
viewtopic.php?f=13&t=718&start=70#p4639

I'd love to test this. Can anyone recommend a cheap USB DVB-T tuner?

Over and above af9015 there is also siano modules in the zip file:
and the following stick is cost effective and works, while having a bit les sensitivity than some others:
http://www.nikingstore.com/shop/geniate ... e-463.html
NB: I do not have any interest, this is just an example.
You can also see af9015 based devices: http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Afatech_AF9015
eg AVerTV Volar Black HD (A850).
