driver for avertv volar green hd model a835" (id vendor: 07ca id product: 3835 )
Hi all,

I have installed xbian 1.0a5 and an "avertv volar green hd model a835" (id vendor: 07ca id product 3835 ). (usb-tv-tuner not supported )

I try to modify the module "dvb-usb-it913x.ko" with some changes in "dvb-usb-ids.h" and "it913x.c" (get from "wget https://github.com/raspberrypi/linux/archive/rpi-3.6.y.tar.gz")

The dvb-usb-it913x.ko generated don't work, dmesg says : "[12907.518097] dvb_usb_it913x: disagrees about version of symbol module_layout"

If you need the steps how I make the dvb-usb-it913x.ko let me know .. but i think it's wrong from the very beggining Undecided

Any help would be appreciated, thanks in advanced

Another try (like the " DVB-T kernel module for: RTL2838" thread")
but with no success

Code:
sudo su
git clone https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-kernel.git
cd xbian-package-kernel/content
rm -rf DEBIAN
cp -R * /
mv /boot/kernel3_8_13.img /boot/kernel.img
reboot

sudo su
wget https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-kernel/blob/master/content/lib/modules/3.8.13%2B/kernel/drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb-v2/dvb-usb-it913x.ko
mv dvb-usb-it913x.ko /lib/modules/3.8.13+/kernel/drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb-v2/dvb-usb-it913x.ko
depmod -a

RE: driver for avertv volar green hd model a835" (id vendor: 07ca id product: 3835 )
i've got also an it_9135 usb tnt,
i've done a push request few days ago to add firmawre,
but do not check for defaut module, i've recompiles v4l drivers on pi,
and now, it is detected, i can 'nearly use it', just now, it don't find any channel,
but have the same problem on ubuntu, and may be it's due to my small antenna,
but hardware is recognised for the pi.

i can post later when i'm at home the module i've compiled, if you want to try.

Thanks! it would be appreciated.
Now i'm trying to compile the kernel driver modules for V4L-DVB devices (git clone git://linuxtv.org/media_build.git) but it takes me a while ..

Sorry Koenkk, i don't understand your request. Although i've found an issue on https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/issues/356 that's exactly what i'm looking for.

How can i clone and compile your kernel repository? ("Compiling the Linux kernel & Raspberry Pi firmware" in https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian/wiki) ??

thanks

The kernel is already compiled, the only thing you need to do is installing it.

Instructions:
Code:
sudo su
cd /home/xbian
git clone --depth 5 https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-kernel.git
cd xbian-package-kernel/content
rm -rf DEBIAN
cp -R * /
depmod -a
cp /boot/kernel3_8_13.img /boot/kernel.img

Hi again,

I follow the instructions and reboot the raspberry but my "avertv volar green hd model a835" is detected (as always) but not try to load the firmware ..

Need this kernel to apply a patch to make this usb-tv-tuner works?
some patch like this ..

post output of "dmesg" command, you can cut the part where it starts to load the relevant module.

Hi mk01,

This is the output when i plug in the usb-tv-tuner

Code:

look into xbian-package-kernel - branch testing. the module there is patched

I download the testing branch, but then my raspberry/xbian doesn't work

Code:
sudo su
cd /home/xbian
git clone -b testing --depth 5 https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-kernel.git
cd xbian-package-kernel/content
rm -rf DEBIAN
cp -R * /
depmod -a
cp /boot/kernel.img-3.8.13+ /boot/kernel.img

Any idea what's happening?

ah, you used the "manual" approach. it will not work. after recovery clone xbian-package-kernel (you have already), xbian-package-initramfs-tools and xbian-package-splash

but generate .deb packages with running gen.package.sh and then install them with dpkg -i pkg1 pkg2 pkg3

and to recover, just take /boot/kernel3_8_13.img from master branch and copy it as /boot/kernel.img ... then you should be able to boot.

then proceed with installing the debs.

sorry for inconvenience.

Sorry mk01, i'm a little confused now ..

I install a 'clean' version of xbian 1.0a5

then ..

Code:
sudo su

apt-get update
apt-get upgrade
apt-get install fakeroot

git clone https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-kernel.git
git clone https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-initramfs-tools.git
git clone https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-splash.git

cd xbian-package-kernel
./gen.package.sh
cd ../xbian-package-initramfs-tools
./gen.package.sh
cd ../xbian-package-splash
cd ..

dpkg  -i xbian-package-kernel/xbian-package-kernel1.1.deb xbian-package-initramfs/xbian-package-initramfs-tools1.0-0.2.deb xbian-package-splash/xbian-package-splash1.0-0.4.deb

The output of dkpg was ..

So i decided to install "initramfs-tools" (apt-get install initramfs-tools) but the ouptut was ..

Code:
Reading package lists... Done

Reading state information... Done
You might want to run 'apt-get -f install' to correct these:
The following packages have unmet dependencies:
initramfs-tools : Depends: klibc-utils (>= 2.0-1~) but it is not going to be installed
                   Recommends: busybox (>= 1:1.01-3) but it is not going to be installed or
                               busybox-initramfs but it is not installable or
                               busybox-static but it is not going to be installed
xbian-package-kernel : Depends: xbian-package-initramfs-tools (>= 1.0) but it is not installable
                        Depends: xbian-package-firmware (>= 1.4) but 1.3 is to be installed
xbian-package-splash : Depends: xbian-package-initramfs-tools (>= 1.0) but it is not installable
E: Unmet dependencies. Try 'apt-get -f install' with no packages (or specify a solution).


Can you help me to do the steps to installs all the stuff (to makes the usb-tv-tuner works)?

Thanks in advance

it wasn't needed to reflash, but for the this steps you are doing fine. I'm just thinking whether after installing all the dependencies you will not end up with beta1 Smile

but yes, you will need kernel, splash, firmware and initramfs. the last named will require busybox, klibc-tools, initrd-tools.
