Review of Linux Compatibility

The PCTV Sports 76e is a USB stick with DVB-T tuner. The stick has the USB-ID 1d19:1101

Bus 001 Device 006: ID 1d19:1101 Dexatek Technology Ltd. DK DVB-T Dongle

The stick is available under several names. Not all devices share the same USB ID:

  • DIKOM USB-DVBT HD (ID 1b80:d394)
  • NILOX DVB-T Stick N15 (ID 1b80:d393)
  • TRUST 16738 (ID 0bda:2832)
  • TERRATEC Cinergy T Stick BLACK (ID 0ccd:00a9)
  • TX Hollywood DVTB (ID 1d19:1101)
  • DIGIVOX mini II v3.0 (ID 1d19:1101)

The stick can be accessed by the Linux kernel module dvb_usb_rtl2832u, which unfortunately is not part of the standard kernels. Therefore, the driver has to be compiled by hand:

The lates version of the driver can be found at its git repository:

git clone git://github.com/tmair/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0.git

Eventually the Makefile has to be adapted before the source code can be compiled. In the directory

cd DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0/RTL2832-2.2.2_kernel-3.0.0

the variable KDIR has to be adapted in the makefile for some Linux distributions in order to find the correct kernel sources:

  -KDIR = /usr/src/kernels/`uname -r`
  +KDIR =/usr/src/linux-`uname -r`

If the path to the kernel sources is correct the driver can be compiled:

make
make install

Afterwards, the kernel module loads automatically if the PCTV Sports Stick is plugged in:
