Can someone please help me to build drivers for the Geniatech T230C2.

I've bought the stick thinking it could work with Geniatech T230 drivers but there are different chips needing different drivers and firmwares in them.

More info about the sticks is here: https://linuxtv.org/...-T2_USB_Devices

Drivers, which should work: https://bitbucket.org/CrazyCat/

Can I build the drivers for the Zero 4k in Ubuntu? How?

I don't think I can build them directly on the Zero 4k...?

I created it cca 1/2 year ago for vs1500 - but it is for 4.10.12 kernel... I am affraid, that for Vu Zero it will be a lot of work.. If you will count price + work price, better was buy VU+ Turbo usb, which is fully supported.

 

You must create it under VU repo in PLi ...

What is so complicated on it? In Ubuntu is done in a couple of minutes.

I was considering the turbo tuner but when researching I have found out it is not very reliable.

You must add whole support for T203C2 and 2141 and 2168 to old kernel...

4.1.20-1.9 is old?

For older kernels (3.x) there are original drivers on the CD.

There must be support for SI2168 firmware D60 (in drivers/media/dvb-frontends/si2168.c) and SI2141 firmware A10 (in drivers/media/tuners/si2157.c)

If you think that is is there in zero 4k kernel, then try install drivers for usb dvbsky t330 and put fw for si2168_d60 and si2141_a10. Thats all...

Thank you.

It seems it will be not that easy.

The support for the firmware is not there and there is no support for 0572:c68a in the dvb-usb-cxusb: :
