    Re: Freecom DVB-T

    Been doing some research and it seems the Freecom unit now uses a different chipset - maybe yours used the older one. The ID of mine is 14aa:0160 so this quote seems to apply
    Freecom rev 4 DVB-T USB 2.0 tuner

    The latest Freecom/Yacumo usb stick has a Realtek 2831U chipset and any of the following usb id's: 14aa:0160, 0bda:2831, 2304:022b, 185b:0100, 13d3:3216, 13d3:3220, 13d3:3236, 13d3:3244, 08dd:2103. Latest Windows drivers dates january 2007 and can be downloaded at freecom.com If anyone has any info on how to get these to work or if a specific firmware works, please add it here.

    Chipset info at http://www.realtek.com.tw/products/p...n=3&ProdID=147

    UPDATE: Realtek submitted a v0.0.2 of their driver feb 20th 2008. This has been confirmed to function for this Freecom (or Conceptronic) stick with usb id: 14aa:0160 on a 2.6.22.17 kernel. This stick has a MT2061F tuner chip, but this driver also supports the MLX5005 tuner chip. No additional firmware file is needed.

    The driver source can be downloaded from [91], but be aware it has only be confirmed to work on devices with usb id 14aa:0160.

    For easier installation you can use [92]. Just unpack and do a make and sudo make install.
    So I'll have a go with that. I don't have the particular kernel mentioned but I'm hoping later ones will work (ie. the Hardy one).

    Well it "makes" and installs without error - but still the device won't work
