ASUSTek LNA Tiger Hybrid 1043:4871

My new HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7682.fr contains a tuner card which support both analog and digital reception.

I tried with Linux and a v4l-db Mercury repository clone (2006-12-29). In both case, I get a very crackled sound: crackle.ogg.
Note that I need to run arecord -D hw:1,0 -r 32000 -c 2 -f S16_LE | aplay as I didn’t found how to automatically hear TV using mixers.

It works on WindowsTM and the device is named ASUSTek LNA Tiger Hybrid Capture Device. I also saw the following names

  • ASUSTek SAA7135HL
  • ASUSTek LNA Tiger Hybrid
  • 713x BDA Analog Capture

I don’t have any driver installation CD (no .inf) but I saw the driver file is 3xHybrid.sys.

Here is what lspci says:

$ lspci -v
03:04.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev d1)
       Subsystem: ASUSTeK Computer Inc. Unknown device 4871
       Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 169
       Memory at fdefe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K]
       Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

$ lspic -nv
03:04.0 0480: 1131:7133 (rev d1)
       Subsystem: 1043:4871
       Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 169
       Memory at fdefe000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K]
       Capabilities: [40] Power Management version 2

So I first read those documentations:

I tried all the tuners driver and the only one which seems to work is tuner=54 (PHILIPS_TDA8290). By looking into the saa7134-cards.c and saa7134.h, I think my card is similar to 78 (ASUSTek P7131
DUAL) or 81 (Philips Tiger). Here is how I load the modules:

modprobe tuner secam=l
modprobe saa7134 tuner=54 card=78 audio_ddep=10 audio_debug=2 i2c_scan=1
modprobe saa7134_alsa debug=1

I tried to remove the secam=l parameter but I get only noise. It detect D/K NICAM but it should be NICAM L as I am in France.

saa7133[0]/audio: tvaudio thread status: 0x1d8009 [D/K NICAM]
saa7133[0]/audio: detailed status: ######## VDSP # NICST ## NICAM muted # NICAM reserve sound # init done

I provided all information to video4linux mailing list and http://www.bttv-gallery.de, cowardly gave up, and found an old bt878 compatible card.

here are some aditionnal information
