Review of Linux Compatibility
The Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-950Q is a TV tuner stick for NTSC Analog Cable, Over the Air TV, ATSC Digital Over the Air HDTV, and Clear QAM Digital Cable TV. The stick is sold under the model ID 1176.
The HVR-950Q has the USB ID 2040:7200
Bus 001 Device 022: ID 2040:7200 Hauppauge
and is supported under Linux since kernel version 2.6.26. The driver needs an additional firmware file to load completely. If not already included in the Linux distribution, this file can be downloaded and installed via:
wget http://www.kernellabs.com/firmware/xc5000/dvb-fe-xc5000-1.6.114.fw mv dvb-fe-xc5000-1.6.114.fw /lib/firmware/
Afterwards, the v4l-dvb driver loads automatically, when the stick is plugged in:
