My new HP Pavilion Media Center TV m7682.fr contains a tuner card which support both analog and digital reception.
I tried with Linux 220.127.116.11 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 LNA Tiger Hybrid
713x BDA Analog Capture
I don’t have any driver installation CD (no .inf) but I saw the driver file is
Here is what
$ 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:  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:  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/audio: tvaudio thread status: 0x1d8009 [D/K NICAM] saa7133/audio: detailed status: ######## VDSP # NICST ## NICAM muted # NICAM reserve sound # init done
here are some aditionnal information
