I’m pleased to announce the mxl111sf Linux driver with support for ATSC on the Hauppauge WinTV-Aero-m.
The device uses a Max Linear tuner with the LG DT3305 ATSC/QAM demodulator. The device also supports ATSC-MH Mobile DTV, but that feature is not yet supported under Linux.
Since I began work on this driver over a year and a half ago, mercurial was the tool used to track development.
If you are the owner of one of these USB dongles, please feel free to give the following repository a try:
Please note, the mxl111sf mercurial development repository is based on a rather old v4l-dvb base tree. The mercurial repository will not work with the latest kernels. For those looking to build this driver using git, I have pushed the driver into the ‘atsc’ branch of my mxl111sf git tree on linuxtv.org:
To clone the atsc branch, run the following command:
git clone -b atsc git://git.linuxtv.org/mkrufky/mxl111sf.git
This is a really cool device – I look forward to hearing your feedback after testing.
