QOEa.Gq1J6DqZNv2:M116 AVerMedia AVerTV MCE 116 Plus (NTSC/PAL/SECAM+FM+REMOTE, Xceive 2028 tuner)

alias char-major-81-0 ivtv
alias char-major-81-1 off
alias char-major-81-2 off
alias char-major-81-3 off

scantv -n SECAM-DK -f russia -i “Tuner 1”
scantv -n SECAM-DK -f russia -i “Tuner 1” -a

can’t find any channel

  1. Then i make some search in google and read this Xceive XC3028/XC2028 - LinuxTVWiki

In order to use, you need to:

1) Download the windows driver with something like:


( find here: Pinnacle PCTV drivers )

2) Extract the file hcw85bda.sys from the zip into the current dir:

unzip -j Driver85/hcw85bda.sys

3) Download the extract script


3) run the script:


4) copy the generated file:

sudo cp xc3028-v27.fw /lib/firmware

and get firmware xc3028-v27.fw

  1. Then download v4l from mercurial, find my card & tuner in CARDLIST.ivtv and CARDLIST.tuner.
  2. After that i change /etc/modprobe.d/99-local.conf like this

please add local extensions to this file

options ivtv cardtype=21 tuner=71
options tuner secam=DK

  1. i reboot my computer and try to scantv one more time with same result. it can’t find any working channel

Please, help me to see TV on my linux computer and don’t use Windows XP.
