    Installation DVB-T U7200

    Hello, I'm a new user of ubuntu forum. I need help to install my DVD-T U7200 Gigabyte, in fact i can't find any type of driver that work properly. In Gigabyte's site there isn't the linux driver for my device...

    searching on internet, someone suggest me to type in terminal "lsusb" with the usb card connected.
    The response is the follow:

    Bus 005 Device 002: ID 1044:7005 Chu Yuen Enterprise Co., Ltd
    Bus 005 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
    Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

    Can anyone help me to configure it?
    thanks!

    Re: Installation DVB-T U7200

    I have exactly same problem. I would like to get my Gigabyte GT-U7200 USB DVB-T working on Ubuntu 9.04.
    I followed some instructions on https://help.ubuntu.com/community/DVB-T_(USB) and tried to get some help from linuxtv.org wikipages, but as this device was not listed anywhere, I could not find a working way to get my device connected.
    I is worth mentioning that I'm rather new to linux and don't understand the inner parts of it very well, but getting my hands dirty is no problem.
    I couldn't get this device correctly working on WinXP either, but I was really hoping Ubuntu and linux will do the trick. Too bad it's not supported natively. Maybe someone is even using this device on linux?

    It's kind of confusing and I don't have an idea how to get this working. Thanks for help!

    Like the previous posters, I cannot get it to work either. Steps I have taken are:

    Tried Jaunty and Karmic Alpha5 64bit builds to see if either work - no joy
    Compiled and installed Video for Linux modules - no joy
    Added the vendor ID to the USBHID quirks parameter to ensure the ir interface doesn't get bound to another driver - no joy
    Translated an Italian posting that the tuner uses a Afatech 9035-N2 chipset - the Italians had no joy getting it to work either!

    lspci reveals:
    Bus 001 Device 011: ID 1044:7005 Chu Yuen Enterprise Co., Ltd

    var/message revels on insert:
    input: GIGABYTE Technologies Inc. U7200 USB TV Device as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1a.7/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.1/input/input8
    generic-usb 0003:1044:7005.0005: input,hidraw4: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [GIGABYTE Technologies Inc. U7200 USB TV Device] on usb-0000:00:1a.7-4/input1

    I do not think there is an easy path to making this device work - without cutting some code (which I do not have the skills to do)!
