Avermedia DVB 761 Setup Fedora Core
Quick Installation Guide
This guide describes how to get Avermedia DVB 761 working with Fedora Core 5, with vanilla kernel.
Without doing anything Fedora Core should detect the card at startup, check /var/log/messages for this line:
Apr 14 11:23:46 HostName kernel: bttv0: using: AverMedia AverTV DVB-T 761 [card=124,autodetected]
You will now have to install the firmware for this card. Put the firmware in /lib/firmware.
Download the firmware here: dvb-fe-sp887x.fw
(They cannot distribute this with the Fedora Core installer
because the source code hasn't been provided for this firmware)
Now you will have to load the modules for the frontend (tuner) to work.
yum install Kaffeine
Kaffeine will automatically download a channel list or your location. Goto to the DVB menu and select Channels... This will scan for channels and allow you to add selected channels to your list. You should now be able to play the channels back through Kaffeine.
