    ATI TV Wonder 600 USB 2.0 (0438:b002) on Linux 2.6.26 kernel


    How to get your ATI TV Wonder 600 USB 2.0 (0438:b002) working with a Linux 2.6.26 kernel?

    (There is support for this device in 2.6.27)

    My resources were:
    ATI/AMD TV Wonder HD 600 USB - LinuxTVWiki
    Em2880 - Devwiki

    - Support is provided by the following modules:
    em28xx_dvb, em28xx, em28xx_alsa

    - Use the attached patch em28xx.patch.txt to patch your 2.6.26 source and compile the kernel/modules.

    - If you compiled the patched kernel using the configuration of, say, the debian tesing kernel, just replace these modules (em28xx_dvb, em28xx and em28xx_alsa) with the new versions, there is no need to install everything.

    - Download the firmware, follow ATI/AMD TV Wonder HD 600 USB - LinuxTVWiki
    You will find ./extract_xc3028.pl in linux-source-2.6.26/Documentation/video4linux/extract_xc3028.pl (for example).

    - Plug in the device, you should see a dmesg like the attached file ati_tv_wonder_dmesg.txt.

    - Scan for dvb (digital) channels:
    scan /usr/share/dvb/atsc/us-ATSC-center-frequencies-8VSB
    , copy the output to
    ~/.xine/channels.conf
    My example channels are in the attached channels.conf.txt.

    - Use xine to watch digital channels.

    - Use tvtime for analogue channels, but there won't be audio (see ATI/AMD TV Wonder HD 600 USB - LinuxTVWiki).
    To get the sound start sox after starting tvtime like this:
    sox -r 48000 -w -c 2 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t alsa default

    - Do NOT attempt to access the sound capture device of the em28xx module (so something like sox -r 48000 -w -c 2 -t alsa hw:1,0 -t alsa default): that will result in immediate kernel panic!

    em28xx* kernel modules for 2.6.26-1-686 (debian testing kernel)

    em28xx* kernel modules for 2.6.26-1-686 (debian testing kernel)

    The attachment is a tgz, but I had to give it the zip extension for this site to accept it. Just replace your em28xx* modules with the files within to get your ATI TV Wonder 600 USB working.
