You shouldn't need to use those tools manually, we'll update the installer next week in order to automatically recognize the device after booting up.


Installation for several applications:,10.0.html

Since there are many different distributions available we did not print a manual yet but prefer to have it online and modify it whenever it's needed. If something does not work out, we'll give support for it and improve the driver installation.

please note the difference between ATTACH and detach:

ATTACH pushes the update request into the background and sleeps several seconds before really triggering an update.

DETACH actually does the same, but without sleeping. So after both of them you should wait 5-10 seconds before checking if the devices are available.

We are about to update the installer in order to automatically recognize the device without having to replug the device, this is mainly a configuration issue.

We got ARM work already yes, although as we just recently started to ship devices we haven't finished a build with the latest driver yet, we'll announce a downloadable driver in the drver section of this forum.

We shall have tested it till wednesday 26th August.

Did you follow the LIRC installation guide?

Without this no keys will be reported to the system.,54.0.html

Although there's a trouble ticket now, the next installer version will ask if the remote control shall be set up for LIRC or just work as keyboard input device.

In order to make it work as a keyboard input device you need to remove:

sudo rm /etc/hal/fdi/preprobe/input.fdi

and reboot the system.

When used as a keyboard input, some buttons, for example the colored ones, are not recognized by the Xorg input system (this is why we set the default to use LIRC).

We want to make everything as easy as possible for endusers.

Did the remote ever work for you? If not and if you have a custom kernel you need uinput support.
uinput allows the driver to register the remote control as a "keyboard". Although since we do not expect everyone having this module installed we'll provide an alternative solution through /dev/mediainput0 soon.

MythTV itself is not bugfree, crashes can be caused due a bad signal, and graphic problems. Although if you experience some bugs feel free to post them in this forum.

My main problem still persists: i have to unplug the tuner card and plug it in again to be able to detect it with mediaclient -e or use it with any application. Bug or feature? =)

what system do you have? (distribution and version).

This is mainly a problem of udev telling the driver if a device got attached or detached, instead of reconnecting you can manually trigger an update by running following command:

/opt/bin/udevsrv ATTACH
/opt/bin/udevsrv DETACH

this should normally be executed by the udev script, although the scripts depend on udev version 124 and greater.
What udev version do you use?

$ udevd --version

The current udev ruleset we deliver can be found in:

This is ok, although you're doing too much already!
Since the driver is in userspace you do not need to load the em28xx driver.

As soon as /opt/bin/mediaclient -e shows up the devices everything is fine, if it does not show up
try to replug the device (this will tell the driver to search the USB bus again)

Try to install mythtv, and run mythtv-setup, after the configuration is done mythfrontend.

Everything really just works like how it is documented (the development was done with Ubuntu 8.10, but it was also tested with several other distributions, also Ubuntu 9.04).

Zum 22. August gab es erneut ein Update welches die Anzeige von /dev/dvb etwas verbessert

Die jeweils letzte Treiberversion ist immer unter zugaenglich (verweist derzeit auf

Did you use the latest driver? The ones which we sent out by mail when we first shipped the devices didn't support MythTV or VDR.

You might retry with:

(latest driver when posting this message - 22. August 09, added ALSA emulation support for FM Transeiver).

This always links to the latest version of the driver.

Removing the driver:
./ -u
-- reboot --

MythTV is supported properly, it supports DVB-T, DVB-C, also AnalogTV (but we do not recommend analog TV with it right now)

We posted some MythTV screenshots in the German Board earlier already,18.0.html

Note right now you cannot switch between DVB-C and DVB-T in MythTV, the MythTV developers are currently working on this, in order to stay compatible you have to switch the device to DVB-T or DVB-C using the mediaclient commands which are also documented in the VDR howto.
A MythTV Howto will follow soon.

Howto's in general are available in following board:,10.0.html

Es gab in der Zwischenzeit ein Maintainance Update:

Bitte Versuchen Sie die aktuelle Version, eine korrekte Installation:

$ ./empia_installer_<version>.sh -u
-- reboot --
$ ./empia_installer_<version>.sh

Sundtek MediaTV Pro / Re:CAM bzw smartcard support?
« am: August 18, 2009, 06:51:13 Nachmittag »
Eine CI/CAM Loesung hat fuer uns derzeit eine hohe Prioritaet, unser Ziel ist es innerhalb der naechsten Monate ebenfalls eine Loesung anzubieten.

« am: August 18, 2009, 02:34:07 Nachmittag »
Wir sind derzeit noch in den Verhandlungen mit weiteren Hardware Unternehmen damit wir zukünftig auch eine CI/CAM Lösung für Linux anbieten können.

Eine genauere Antwort auf diese Frage können wir Ihnen zu diesem Zeitpunkt leider noch nicht geben. Wir können Sie jedoch gerne per Email Benachrichtigen sobald sich hierbei etwas ändert.

We will put up a short introduction to MythTV soon, right now MythTV requires to set the devicemode using mediaclient to DVB-C or DVB-T before you start it. This will be solved with an upcoming MythTV release from the MythTV developers.

MythTV is properly supported with analogTV. DVB-T, C, analogTV including capturing is supported

« am: August 17, 2009, 05:52:16 Nachmittag »
We are currently looking into Debian/Lenny and your particular issue, it shouldn't be a big problem for our engineers to resolve your problem. The main tests have been done with Debian Sarge and Ubuntu for now.

So the KDE error has been resolved, as for Audio we increased the buffer size in the driver (we think it has something to do with the latency on your system, maybe another kernel issue).

A liveCD for verifying the support of those devices will be available within a few days.

This seems like a USB issue for some reason, we are grabbing a copy of Debian/Lenny for testing.
Since you're able to capture this noise directly from the driver the audio output seems to be fine. We're checking it.
Do you get any video corruptions?

When using DVB please always double check with the signal strenght.

Drivers / Linux driver roadmap
« am: August 17, 2009, 01:22:38 Nachmittag »

* finalizing support for kaffeine and VLC (dvb)
* support for alternative remote controls (NEC, RC5, RC6 are supported by the hardware)
* USB CI Support
* Linux livecd with Sundtek MediaTV Pro/Gold support
* Virtual DVB/FM radio driver which allows remote access to the device via W-Lan/Network
* DVB-S2 (S2-API) Support which will be default with all applications from ~2010 on)
