Re: leadtek dtv dongle

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]

As I originally posted the quoted email below, I might be able to help you.

firstly: lsusb is located in the usbutils package so you may need to install it, or you need to prefix the command with its location
i.e. /sbin/lsusb. Please try this first and post the result back to the list. (with the -v option please)

secondly in reference to my patch below.
I never heard anything more from the list about it and I have no reason to believe it was ever incorporated as a patch. I suspect this dongle is a variant sold only in Australia (where you and I are from obviously) and so the demand is relatively small - thus no one else was interested. I posted more for people like yourself for whom my fix may help.

The only thing this patch did is add an extra identifier so that the dongle was recognized. Now that said, I suspect there is an even more recent variant released in the last 2/3 months (right after I bought mine :( ) which may have a different identifier again. So the result of lsusb is even more important.

Unfortunately I got distracted after I got my dongle recognized and haven't made it fully work yet (with MythTv) - but if you are interested I might have another go at it.

I also note the large number of dibcom related posts in recent months which will have a direct bearing on this dongle. So recent versions of the dvb code are essential.

Note that the Leadtek device is not actually recognised by the kernel (shown 
via dmesg).

The following is from a previous conversation on this mailing list and might 
give you the info you need:


How do I get a patch incorporated into the dvb kernel section ?

After recently purchasing a LeadTek WinFast DTV Dongle I rapidly
discovered it was the variant that was not recognized in the kernel

i.e. as previously reported at:

its device ids are: (lsusb)
ID 0413:6f01 Leadtek Research, Inc.

Rather than make the changes suggested by previous posters I set about
making a script and associated kernel patches to automatically do this.
My motivation was simple: I use a laptop with an ATI graphics card and
fedora 8. I find the best drivers for this card are currently from Livna
and are updated monthly (and changes are significant at the moment i.e.
see the phoronix forum). So I would need to do this repeatedly.

In my patch I add an identifier (USB_PID_WINFAST_DTV_DONGLE_STK7700P_B)
and modify the table appropriately

When I plug it in I now see in my messages log
kernel: usb 1-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9

Many thanks,

Can you say what is usb-id of your device? Also lsusb -v could be nice
to see.
