Firmware for xc2028 tuner and Winfast TV2000 XP Global

In case you try the v4l-dvb from mercurial repository and winfast TV2000 xp global (seems to be suported if you look the cx88 card list but no sound in my case )

install v4l-dvb from source

$hg clone

cd v4l-dvb
make ; sudo make install

Then extract the firmware


In order to use, you need to:
1) Download the windows driver with something like:
2) Extract the file hcw85bda.sys from the zip into the current dir:
unzip -j
3) run the script:
4) copy the generated file:
sudo cp xc3028-v27.fw /lib/firmware

reboot and driver should look like this

Hi, thanks for the installation instructions, works fine for me now. In order to get sound you'll need to redirect via sox, e.g.:

sox -v 1.0 -c 2 -s -r 32000 -t ossdsp /dev/dsp1 -t ossdsp -r 32000 /dev/dsp

Maybe you'll first have to load the saa7134-alsa module first (modprobe saa7134-alsa as root).
