Examen de compatibilité avec Linux

The TechniSat SkyStar HD USB is a satellite receiver and can is connected via USB to th PC. The DVB-S2 Receiver supports HDTV and is very space-saving with its physical dimentsion of 100mm x 100mm. The receiver is fully supported by Linux since Kernel version 2.6.39.

The receiver has the USB-ID 14f7:0500 and is recognized in the following way:

Bus 001 Device 010: ID 14f7:0500 TechniSat Digital GmbH DVB-PC TV Star HD

To access the receiver the firmware file dvb-usb-SkyStar_USB_HD_FW_v17_63.HEX.fw is needed, which can be downloaded at http://kernellabs.com/firmware/technisat-usb2, if the file is not already provided by the Linux distribution. The file has to be copied to /lib/firmware/.

The kernel uses the module dvb-usb-technisat-usb2 to control the HD satellite receiver. To load this module the following line has to be added to the file /etc/modules

dvb-usb-technisat-usb2

Afterwards, the receiver is recognized an initialized by the Kernel in the following way:

dvb-usb: Technisat SkyStar USB HD (DVB-S/S2) successfully deinitialized and disconnected.

IR Remote Control

The integrated infraread receiver is also supported by Linux via LIRC. The program ir-keytable has to be installed to let Linux process the signals of the remote as keyboard events. This program can be installed in Debian-based distributions (e.g. Ubuntu) by the command:

sudo apt-get install ir-keytable

The configuration file matching to the remote has to be selected and copied to /etc/rc_keymaps

sudo cp /lib/udev/rc_keymaps/technisat_usb2 /etc/rc_keymaps/

The configuration has to be activated (this will also select the necessary RC-5 infrared protocoll)

sudo ir-keytable -w /etc/rc_keymaps/technisat_usb2

Afterwards, the lirc kernel module can be loaded:

sudo modprobe ir-lirc-codec

and LIRC has to be configured to listen to the /dev/input/eventX device and interpret the signals from the infraread receiver. The re-configuration can be started by the package manager

sudo dpkg-reconfigure lirc

The following options have to be selected:

#    Remote control configuration:
#        Linux input layer (/dev/input/eventX)

#    IR transmitter:
#        None

#    Event Interface:
#         /dev/input/by-path/pci-0000:00:1d.7-usb-0:4-event-ir

The configuration can be tested with the LIRC program irw:

irw

To enable an automatic loading of the LIRC module at each boot the file /etc/modules has to be appended with the following line

ir-lirc-codec

The program ir-keytable can be booted automatically at system start-up if the corresponding command is added to the file /etc/rc.local, i.e. the line

ir-keytable -p LIRC

has to be added to this file in a line above the « exit » command.
