Raspberry pi using Raspbian as TV tuner


Hello. I have a Raspberry pi using Raspbian. I want to set it up as a tv headend and I have a problem setting up my tuner.

My dsmeg

The specific tuner (Avermedia H810) has a TDA18271HD chipset which should be supported by my kernel (3.18.7+).

Can anyone help me sort it out?

Thaaaanx!

There's more to getting it to work than a chipset. I don't see it on the wiki for support from LinuxTV, for example http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/AVerMedia

Still, it's worth a try, since the page is out of date and several Avermedia devices do apparently work. Try using w_scan to see what you can scan with the thing. I assume you have it connected to an antenna and can verify (perhaps by connecting it to a Windows machine with the appropriate drivers) that you can get it to work and get some kind of signal. See http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/W_scan for usage.

The output of w_scan is

Info: using DVB adapter auto detection.

so I think that the device is still not recognized...

What does lshwd show, and lsmod? You might have to manually modprobe the chipset; ie something like
# modprobe tda18271
