    Post How to install dvb-t card based on Realtek chip in kernel 3.0.0 & 3.1.0 & 3.2.0

    Due that plenty of well written modification of realtek rtl2831 and realtek rtl2832 driver on internet and even on this forum, that not work past Ubuntu 10.04 LTS, and very few work in relases after but just for exact card model..
    I choose to post here this procedure which work under actual Ubuntu releases for almost all dvb-t cards based on Realtek chip.
    Thanks list is down under.

    There is NOW very simple way to make RTL2832U driver working in Ubuntu with kernel 3.0.0 ,kernel 3.1.0 and even kernel 3.2.0(with small edit),that means a lot of dvb-t cards,regardless USB dvb-t or PCI dvb-t with Realtek chip will work under Ubuntu 11.10 and even under Ubuntu 12.04 LTS which have to arive soon.
    "Not Only TV" -LifeView LV5TDLX is just one of those cards.
    Personally i test it with "Not Only TV LV32TDLX"(two tuners) on Ubuntu 11.10 with kernel 3.0.0 and work fine.
    List of codes(PID & VID) of supported manufacturer and models of cards i will add too,but that list constantly growing..as 10tuners are supported.

    Original Realtek RTL2832U chipset (DVB/DAB) Linux 2.6.x driver rel. 2.2.2 , "full" version

    Thanks to Realtek (as company)
    Thanks to Xgazza
    Thanks to Skaman
    Thanks to Gennar1
    Thanks to Ambrosa

    This procedure is valid for kernel 3.0.0 and kernel 3.1.0
    That means you can use it in Ubuntu 11.10
    just copy & paste, line by line in terminal following by ENTER --> newbie friendly

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install build-essential
    sudo apt-get install linux-headers-$(uname -r)
    sudo apt-get install git
    git clone https://github.com/ambrosa/DVB-Realt...nel-3.0.0.git*
    cd DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0
    cd RTL2832-2.2.2_kernel-3.0.0
    make clean
    make
    sudo make install
    now its time to make restart of Your computer or just type in terminal
    Code:
    sudo reboot
    thats it! end of story.

    if You wish to check if driver is loaded type
    Code:
    lsmod | grep dvb
    You should get someting like..
    dvb_usb_rtl2832u 341269 0
    dvb_usb 23788 1 dvb_usb_rtl2832u
    dvb_core 94826 1 dvb_usb
    what means that driver rtl2832u is loaded and working.

    All your dvb-t aplication now will recognize your dvb-t card.
    Next to do is to scan for available dvb-t chanels.
    As player Kaffeine can use also your dvb-t card,and show you tv and have scan for dvb channels built in,i recommend it for use.

    This driver depends of particular model of card will open fm radio and DAB radio if your card have support for it.Mine do.

    Enjoy watching & recording dvb-t.. .. and listening & recording FM radio or DAB radio.

    Bad luck,here in my place in Croatia,there is no DAB signal,whatever..sorry if i miss-spell something,english is not my native language..
    enjoy in dvb-t
    ...Buntu...to all

    Re: How to install dvb-t card based on Realtek chip in kernel 3.0.0 & 3.1.0 & 3.2.0

    I have tried your instructions and they do not work for me (I use oneiric so my kernel is 3.0.0-14). According to lsusb my device is:

    Bus 001 Device 007: ID 0bda:2831 Realtek Semiconductor Corp. RTL2831U DVB-T

    which should work according to your instructions. I compile, run "sudo make install" and get no error message. However, when I do "lsmod|grep dvb" nothing happens. And, of course, the dvb-t card does not work...
    Any ideas?
    Thanks,

    Gamx

    With your solution my GIGABYTE U7300 DVB-T dongle works great on freshly installed ubuntu 11.10
    Thanks from Poland!

    @s1hr

    I followed your instructions successfully until the "make" command where I get my first error message. I presume that all subsequent error messages are a consequence of this first one. I am copying the terminal window output, starting from the "make clean" command. (The commands I entered are in red, the first error message I can detect is in blue.)

    The system is a rock-standard Xubuntu 11.10 32-bit (fully up to date). Let me know if you need any more info.

    What can I do to resolve this and to get my DVB-T dongle going?

    Thanks, Leo

    Thank you so much s1hr! The usb dvb-t dongle is working fine now!
    For reference, it's a chinese one with no brand, with a rtl2832, an E4000 tuner and remote support.
    The usb id is:
    Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0bda:2838 Realtek Semiconductor Corp.
    dmesg reports :

    Re: How to install dvb-t card based on Realtek chip in kernel 3.0.0 & 3.1.0 & 3.2.0

    Trying to do this on Opensuse 12.1 x64 (uname -r = 3.1.10-1.9-desktop).
    The standard linux headers in suse are: /usr/src/linux-3.1.10-1.9/ and a symbolic link of /usr/src/linux points to this.
    Thus I had to rename /usr/src/linux-3.1.10-1.9/ to /usr/src/linux-headers-3.1.10-1.9-desktop/ as /usr/src + uname -r doesn't equal the correct path.
    This seemed to fix my main problem, but then running make, I got this:
    Code:
    make -C /usr/src/linux-headers-`uname -r` SUBDIRS=/Temp/NewREaltek/DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0/RTL2832-2.2.2_kernel-3.0.0 modules

    make[1]: Leaving directory `/usr/src/linux-headers-3.1.10-1.9-desktop'

    This was the second run.... but gave the same errors.
    How to fix?
    Thanks, John.

    I have compiled without error messages, but the device not work. And when I typed
    > lsmod |grep dvb
    shows noghing

    Even when I load the module explicity whith

    Just wondering what the "small edit" for kernel 3.2 is? Couldn't find it in the thread.

    Hi.

    STEP 5:

    cd DVB-Realtek-RTL2832U-2.2.2-10tuner-mod_kernel-3.0.0

    there you can see a file named README, open it and read:


    Main thread about OpenPli project: http://openpli.org/forums/topic/2089...port-proposal/

    goto that url. There, ambrosa 0n #18 says:

    - edit Makefile and remark include file about kernel 320... bla bla bla

    STEP 6

    cd RTL2832-2.2.2_kernel-3.0.0

    AND EDIT Makefile

    # kernel 3.0.0 / 3.1.0
    #INCLUDE_EXTRA_DVB := include-300

    # kernel 3.2.0
    INCLUDE_EXTRA_DVB := include-320

    save Makefile and try again for kernel 3.2.0

    STEP 7, 8 and 9:

    make clean
    make
    sudo make install

    GOOD LUCK
