Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner

Added by Stephen Neal over 5 years ago

Hi all

This looks like it could be very good value if Open Source drivers appear for it : http://www.xbox.com/en-GB/xbox-one/accessories/digital-tv-tuner#fbid=1ui_UaaGUzy GBP£25/EUR€30 for a DVB-T/T2/C USB tuner for use with the Microsoft Xbox One (but like the Sony Play TV presumably usable on any PC platform if Linux drivers appear)

isn't Linux Mint 18.3 also using Kernel 4.15 like normal Ubuntu ?
The Stick just works ootb with 4.16.

Installed the ukuu kernel manager and i'm installing kernel 4.16.0 now

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by Anonymous over 1 year ago

Hey there! Kernel rpi-4.19.23-v7 just got released.

Does the XBOX TV tuner work with it out of the box?

Thanks in advance

I just checked and it appears to work with brief testing.
I updated with rpi-update, if I unhold raspberrypi-bootloader and raspberrypi-kernel then it's still 4.14.

Sorry for the noob bringing this thread to the top again.

I have an Rpi3 and and xbox tuner, I install and update the rpi and update it to the latest kernel.......... I install tvheadend and everything seems to work, it sees the tuner but It fails to find any channels, even when I manually add the muxes

Kind of at loss as I have tried 3 times over now.... am I missing the firmware maybe?

Hello,

Put here the output of "dmesg" command after you plug the USB.

Regards.

I was stuck at the same point of you last weekend. I follow the steps you have indicated (in my case, I was obtaining muxes but no services) but I forgot to copy the specific firmware (http://palosaari.fi/linux/v4l-dvb/firmware/MN88472/02/latest/) to this path /lib/firmware. Once I did that, TVH started to recognize channels from muxes. I don't want to say this is the specific solution for your issue but hope this could help you.

Regards,

Thanks for the replies, All the tutorials I read none said anything about firmware. I figured it out about 1am last night and its all workings perfectly!

Thanks!!

Hi,
I tried the following instructions on an Odroid XU4 (Ubuntu 19.04 minimal with 4.14.111-158 kernel):

cd media_build
git reset --hard 9ccb87d

make distclean
make

sudo make install

But it failed during 'make' with the following error:

If you are experiencing problems building the v4l-dvb tree, please try
building against a vanilla kernel before reporting a bug.

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by C vH about 1 year ago

try to apply this modifications
https://github.com/LibreELEC/LibreELEC.tv/blob/master/packages/linux-driver-addons/dvb/dvb-latest/patches/driver.dvb.dvb-latest-02-disable-modules.patch

that disables cec building etc and should make it work (just open that file and do it manually or apply patchfile)

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by F K about 1 year ago

Thanks, the build and the make install were successful after I modified the /v4l/scripts/make_kconfig.pl file according to your suggestion!

But I cannot use it yet. Dmesg shows the followings:

is this also present without using media_build ?

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by F K about 1 year ago

Do you mean if I unplug the usb cable (xbox tuner)?
If yes, then my answer is no. The above logs appear in dmesg only if the xbox tuner is connected.

I read the instructions at the end of the wiki page (what you linked), it recommends a reboot (I made it twice) and to check the *.ko.gz files, but there is no such file.

I tried also this command:

for file in `find /lib/modules -name "*.ko"`; do if [[ -e $file.gz ]]; then echo "$file.gz should be removed"; fi; done

It doesn't show anything.

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by C vH about 1 year ago

did you tried an

sudo make install

at the end ?

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by saen acro about 1 year ago

and do not forged

sudo depmod -a

and restart

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by F K about 1 year ago

I tried 'make install' without sudo, but it looked fine. And there was

/sbin/depmod -a 4.14.111-158

at the end (last command in the make install).

Instead of further troubleshooting I compiled 5.0.3 kernel what supports this device by default. The detection went well, but I was problem with tvheadend at first time. After w_scan (I am not sure it was necessary) and pre-defined mux modification everything works fine. :)

Thanks for your help!

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by C vH about 1 year ago

w_scan has nothing to do with Tvheadend :)

great that it works

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by Paraic McDonagh about 1 year ago

Wow these are great and cheap tuners! It took just 2 mins to get them set up in Ubuntu 19.04
Just drop the firmware file into /lib/firmware (as root) from here : http://palosaari.fi/linux/v4l-dvb/firmware/MN88472/02/latest/
They show up as Panasonic tuners after rebooting. In TVH, make sure that they are enabled and that they are associated with the correct network.
That's all you need to do!
I got 2 of these for €12 each from ebay. They are MUCH better than the August T230s which they replaced on my setup. Tuning is fast and there are no conflicts with each other or with DVB-S2 tuners.
No need to compile Media Build or anything like that, which is great. They tune in to all the Saorview channels in Ireland perfectly, in case anyone needs that piece of information. I have both USB 2.0 and 3.0 sockets.
They work fine in USB 2.0 for HD programming. Also the built in usb flying leads are great to ensure that they don't suffer from mechanical strain and they are otherwise of excellent build quality.

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by C vH about 1 year ago

sadly the stick has major problems at some stations, but that is not linux driver related because the same happens at the Xbox too :(

RE: Xbox One DVB-T/T2/C tuner - Added by Luka Karinja about 1 year ago

It works perfectly for DVB-T Slovenia and Italy muxes

Hi C vH, sorry to bother (can't register on Libreelec), but your repository for nightly TVH builds seem to be down...
