dvb-fe-tda10045.fw missing

Asked by paul-cyt on 2010-03-08

dvb-fe-tda10045.fw is missing and is required for some DVB-T cards (NovaT PCI and HVR 1300?)

This firmware is not available in package linux-firmware-nonfree, nor can I grab directly with get_dvb_firmware script

Using Mythbunutu 10.04 64bit: (Build from 5/3/2010)

$ ./get_dvb_firmware tda10045

You are correct. Seems like technotrend moved things about on the website, but the result is a can't get the firmware for my DVB card.

How should I proceed with this enquiry?

There is a command and file on the link I gave telling you to run a command (also listed on the same page) to get the file you need.

so the short answer is: click the link and read.

Doh! That me making that forum post (take a look at the nickname)
I Googled for hours to find that rpm and then a way to extract the file.

While this is a fix, its using files outside Ubuntu and I have no clue if this firmware is old/current.

Can you see if this firmware has ever been included in this package? Or ask someone if they have the file - I'm happy to load this end and try and work out which is the latest firmware.

Alternatively we need to figure out a way to extract the firmware from the windows driver files for the hauppauge nova-t pci which I believe is the same card.

I beg for you help - you can see that I already made various forum posts on this subject - I'm feeling lonely :-(
Maybe you have better contacts for this type of file?

As long as its the right file and it works it doesn't matter if its old or new or old. If it works then it works

You can use dpkg -S to find the filename in the packages but I think yuo will just have to use that file, the file is from another Linux ditro so is the same OS essentially.

Can you help with this problem?
