If you use dvb with Linux, your adapter will appear as device /dev/dvb/adapterN/

Hauppauge Aero

I bought a Hauppauge Aero DVB USB Stick. I followed but to no avail.

Terratec Cinergy T Stick

Trying to get it work with Ubuntu 11.10:

  • become super user
sudo su -
  • find out USB id of the stick
hwinfo --usb
 Vendor: usb 0x0ccd "TerraTec Electronic GmbH"
 Device: usb 0x0099 "DVB-T 2"
  • here I was misguided I think
apt-get install libproc-processtable-perl
git clone git://
cd media_build
make install
  • Download the firmware
  • copy the firmware to the right place
# cp dvb-usb-af9015.fw /lib/firmware/
  • let's see if the device is visible to the kernel
# ls -ld /dev/dvb/adapter*
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 120 2011-12-12 21:23 /dev/dvb/adapter0
drwxr-xr-x 2 root root 120 2011-12-12 21:23 /dev/dvb/adapter1
  • move to a region where you can receive DVB-T
  • start DVB application
