Terratec Cinergy T2 USB: how can I use this in Linux (Ubuntu 6.06, ppc)?

Hello. I'm new to linux and to this forum, so I'm sorry if I'm missing anything here.

My distro is Ubuntu 6.06, and my kernel is 2.6.15-26-powerpc, and the computer is an Apple eMac G4.

I have a Terratec Cinergy T2, which I've been using with OS X for a while. I've just recently installed Ubuntu and I'm wondering how to get it working with it. Are there drivers I need to install, and if so where can I get them? Or can anyone point me in the direction of a guide for this?

The Terratec Cinergy T2 is connected via USB. The output of lsusb is
Bus 004 Device 008: ID 0ccd:0038 TerraTec Electronic GmbH Cinergy T^2 DVB-T Receiver
Bus 004 Device 007: ID 06b9:4061 Alcatel Telecom SpeedTouch ISDN or ADSL Modem
Bus 004 Device 006: ID 05e3:0702 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 IDE Adapter
Bus 004 Device 003: ID 05e3:0605 Genesys Logic, Inc. USB 2.0 Hub [ednet]
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 002 Device 003: ID 05ac:1003 Apple Computer, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 004: ID 05ac:0304 Apple Computer, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 005: ID 05ac:020c Apple Computer, Inc.
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
, which seems to suggest that it's detected it.

However, I haven't the faintest idea what I need to do to use the device.

If anyone has any suggestions, I'd be most grateful.

ETA: Ok, now I've found that Kaffeine should be able to work with this adapter, so I've tried that. It detected the T2. I configured it to use what appears to be my nearest transmitter, and then scanned for channels, but it found no channels. Hmm.

ETA (2): Argh, well I've got it working now, but I'm not sure how I did it. *is a useless newbie* Sorry.

Glad to hear. I am responding so that your post does not show on the "0 reply" list, seeing as you got it sorted. And don't call yourself useless, as I haven't the foggiest of what a "Terratec Cinergy T2" even is, and you managed to get it working...

I have a similar problem. My TV board is a Terratec Cinergy HT PCI DVB-T, and it isn't recognized in Ubuntu
