View Full Version : Dvico DVB-T Duo Tuning problems

December 9th, 2011, 01:38 AM
I have recently updated from Mythbuntu Ver 10.1 to 11 and my Dvico DVB-T Duo card has some Tuning problems.
When i add the card only one tuner shows (dev 0). This tuner shows up and can be connected to the Australian freeview DVBt source however when a scan is completed to pick up the freeview channels the signal is almost non existant. No channels are picked up at all. This is despite the fact i can watch tv on my lcd screen through the lcd tv tuner without any reception issues.
I never had this problem with Version 10 and I really wanted version 11 to work. Can anyone help me? Please be gentle as Im a newbie!!:confused:

Just had a look at dmesg and heres what it showed.

It's pretty obvious that the firmware file dvb-usb-bluebird-01.fw is missing.

If you go to packages.ubuntu.com and search for the package that contains that file you will find that you need to install the package linux-firmware-nonfree

sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree should fix it.
