To get the Peak DVB-T IDE multimedia card working in dvb-t it seems to be necessary to mess about with firmware according to the following recipe, which is for Gentoo
Troubleshooting on card [1043:4876]
In /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-dvb.c, line 873, struct tda1004x_config philips_tiger_config
change the entry
.request_firmware = NULL,
.request_firmware = philips_tu1216_request_firmware,
run /usr/src/linux/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware and copy the dvb-fe-tda10046.fw to /lib/firmware
modprobe saa7134 card=78 gpio_tracking=1
STOP PRESS - the Mercurial version "emerge v4l-dvb-hg" gives the card a proper card number of 112.
The card can then be brought up with "modprobe saa7134 card=112 tuner=54 gpio_tracking=1 i2c_scan=1". You may also need to modprobe saa7134-dvb and saa7134-alsa. This works now but may not continue to do so.
But there seems to be no /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-dvb.c file, or anything like it on the computer. (Debian Etch AMD64
). So I cannot change line 873 like it wants.
Any suggestions? TIA. Hang on, the file isn't tda1004x_config or something is it?
