AVerTV Volar HD PRO nor recognized by Mint 14

Postby ezilg » Tue Feb 26, 2013 12:01 pm

Hello, I newly installed Mint 14 Nadia (64-bit version) Cinnamon.
Linux 3.5.0.17-generic (x86_64)
Stick : AVerTV Volar HD PRO A835 is not recognized.
So far I have not found any useful infos on what might fix this.
Me TV and Kaffeine will be for viewing.
Please help. Thanks

In the meanwhile I found a solution :

nadine@nadine-Aspire-E1-531 ~ $ dmesg | grep dvb
[ 143.339447] dvb-usb: found a 'AVerMedia AVerTV Volar HD/PRO (A835)' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
[ 143.340923] dvb-usb: did not find the firmware file. (dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw) Please see linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more details on firmware-problems. (-2)
[ 143.340933] dvb_usb_af9035: probe of 2-1.2:1.0 failed with error -2
[ 143.340949] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_af9035

I therefore got the missing file via :
wget http://xgazza.altervista.org/Linux/DVB/ ... 9035-02.fw
copied it to /lib/firmware
sudo cp dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw /lib/firmware/dvb-usb-af9035-02.fw

then a reboot
and all was working !

Another solution which was proposed to me was :
additional installation out of the packetsource : linux-firmware-nonfree
