    Trying to get EyeTV One digital tuner to work

    I've been trying to get ubuntu to recognize my eyetv one tuner.
    I'm running on an older mac mini. I can't get anything to show up under /dev/dvb

    It looks like it's the same tuner as this:
    http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.ph...Stick#Firmware

    Here is the dmesg after I plug it in:

    [ 2561.713138] usb 1-3: >Product: EyeTV One
    [ 2561.713143] usb 1-3: >Manufacturer: Elgato
    [ 2561.713148] usb 1-3: >SerialNumber: 000000be

    and after lsusb:

    eolson@PowderServer:/dev$ lsusb

    Bus 001 Device 009: ID 1058:0748 Western Digital Technologies, Inc.

    Thanks for any help

    got it to work .
    seem it needs a firmware for its usb chipset ( usb id will be swap correctly then)
    its a cypress fx2 chip ( download the mac driver and find eyetvsatfree.hex
    if you have that install fxload

    lsusb to fill in adress of usb -->xxx/xxx
    sudo fxload -t fx2 -I ./eyetvsatfree.hex -D /dev/bus/usb/xxx/xxx
    then you will have tunner . now only create a correct driver for it and udev
