Hi All,

I managed to get the TinyTwin working on Ubuntu with Myth TV.

Has anyone had any luck on getting the DigitalNow TinyTwin remote control working with MythTV or Mythbuntu ?

I'm assuming the remote is the same as for the TinyUSB model?

Cheers,
Pete

Can you share with us how you got the TinyTwin working under Linux?
I know that a few Linux guys were working on a driver for it, but haven't heard that they had finished.
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015/summary
As for the remote, yes it is the same as the TinyUSB, but the way it works (at least under window) is different as it does not have a separate driver for the remote, it uses a table that is loaded into the windows registry. I have no idea how that would work under Linux.

TinyTwin install on Ubuntu


It's a bit of an involved process but yes it does work. AF9015 chipset and the other one MT2060.

Here are the steps. This was done on Ubuntu 8.04.
I took the instructions from about 3 different forums that had different ways to do it. Non of those ways worked for me but combining them, it works.

CODE


sudo aptitude install mercurial linux-headers-$(uname -r) build-essential make dvb-utils

wget http://www.telecable.es/personales/bbbaaa/dvb-usb-af9015.fw

sudo cp dvb-usb-af9015.fw /lib/firmware/$(uname -r)

hg clone http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015/archive/tip.tar.gz

cd tip.tar.gz

make && sudo make install

cd v4l

sudo modprobe i2c-core

sudo insmod ./dvb-core.ko

sudo insmod ./dvb-usb.ko

sudo insmod ./mt2060.ko

sudo insmod ./qt1010.ko

sudo insmod ./af9013.ko

sudo insmod ./dvb-usb-af9015.ko

gksudo gedit /etc/modules

dvb-usb-af9015

Reboot.


The last two are obviously not commands but instructions. Just append dvb-usb-af9015 inside the /etc/modules file. And reboot. You don't have to reboot but its the quickest way to unload any other modules that may conflict.

When you plug your TinyTwin in. You can do a dmesg command to see if it worked.
The output should be similar to this:

Good luck everyone. Lets hope there is an easier way soon. This is a great little tuner for a reasonable price.
I am able to pick up all channels in Brisbane.

Yeah thort it was in the wrong section. So is there a way to get that remote to work in Linux? I'm sure there is. But being lazy. Dunno.

Hi Pete,

I have recently started installing Myth (with quite a few difficulties, but am making some progress now; I have had to do 2 re-installs, as some things just went crazy; some guys from the XP Media Centre forum (surprisingly) have been giving me some guidance, particularly with finding the install guide; however, even with the install guide, some of the config data is very obscure for me).

I would like to know what you did to get the driver for the Tiny Twin tuner. (Renura did send me a URL, but I couldn't make any sense of the list that came from that.)

As well as the Tiny Twin, I also have a DVICO dual digital 4 tuner; I think that I have installed that driver OK. (I have found that 2 tuners are not always enough).

I have been using Ubuntu for 2 years now (for my home office PC), but I am a complete novice when it comes to using the command line. However, if I have all of the commands written out for me, I can follow them.

I am sorry to say that I can't help you on your quest for using the Tiny Twin remote.

I have a Microsoft remote, a DVICO Fusion remote, a DNTV/Tiny Twin remote & a Logitech Harmony remote (which I haven't yet been able to program for my PC). I found that the MS one worked fairly well on the XP MCE powered HTPC, particularly as it has its own IR receiver plus 2 senders, so I will probably try t o use that on Myth, at first.

Good luck with your remote, Garry.

Unfortunately I have no ideas about Linux at all, it is one of those things that I should learn, but never have the time to do. You might searching for Linux support for the same remote that used with the old TinyUSB device - which were used by many Linux users.

It works! Thanks a million dubski!!

I'd been put off by the myriad "it works"/"it doesn't work" posts around the web (of course, never having any more info than that), so I figured I'd wait until I saw it here... I'm really glad you gave us an "it works...and here's how" post smile.gif This was the last thing keeping me from ditching windows.

FYI, during my search, I found a few different firmware versions. I found this link when a tutorial didn't work because it was missing the www. subdomain in the URL. I notice you used 4.65, this is version 4.95, so I used this one instead: dvb-usb-af9015.fw.Obviously it works either way....

I tested this with MeTV, which is available in the ubuntu repos. It still won't lock onto SBS, a problem I also have with digitalwatch, but that's a story for another thread - nothing to do with linux. Otherwise, it works as expected.

I have attached the firmware files to this post, in case they should disappear some day. It happens.... tip.tar.gz is too big to attach unfortunately.


Would anyone be interested in a .deb package of this? I need to learn to package, and this seems like a good candidate for some practice smile.gif

Cool. Thanks for the update firmware. I'll give that a go. Im still looking into the remote control. Have lots to learn about lirc.
Any useful info, I'll post on the new thread renura started.
