  • Linux compatible, fantastic little device

    Involvement:Expert (understands the inner workings) - Ownership:1 day to 1 week


    Tiny little device, good quality tv reception here in New Zealand.

    Contains ITE9135 chip (I opened it up) which has Linux support (see below)


    Remote doesn't work in Linux.

    Included antenna is pretty much useless here in NZ, need to connect to outdoor antenna. I cut cable and soldered on a standard TV socket so could connect to roof antenna cable.


    To get working in Linux, you'll need to compile the ITE9135 driver. Very good instructions here:

    Other useful information here once you have the drivers working for pre-tuning the channels and getting a channels.conf file for VLC


    Good little device with linux support, included antenna useless but can just cut cable and connect to outdoor antenna for good performance.
