OpenSuSE 12.3 and Terratec H7 DVB-C device


i have a Terratec H7 USB DVB-C device that i am trying to get
operational under OpenSuse 12.3 on an Acer G5750 Notebook.

Accoring to

the thing is supported since Kernel version 3.6.8.

So far i downloaded
dvb-usb-terratec-h7-az6007.fw and dvb-usb-terratec-h5-drxk.fw
and put it under /lib/firmware

Judging from the output of dmesg the device seems to be recognized

lsmod tells me the modules
dvb_usb_az6007, drxk and mt2063 are loaded.

However i do not get a device file under /dev.
I have a /dev/video0, but this is the Webcam of the notebook.

xawtv -hwscan gives me the following:

This is xawtv-3.102, running on Linux/x86_64 (3.7.10-1.4-desktop)
looking for available devices
port 97-112
type : Xvideo, image scaler
name : Intel(R) Textured Video

/dev/video0: OK -device /dev/video0 ]
type : libv4l
name : 1.3M HD WebCam
flags: capture

There is a folder /dev/dvb/adapter0 which contains several entries, but
none can be used with xawtv -c …

Anyone got this thing working with v4l?

Thanks in advance

it is not a V4L device; its a DVB device. xawtv (with the exception of an ancient, and very dormant, development branch) is an analogue only app. Use a DVB/DTV app. The following four links will assist you as they address the explicit and implicit content and questions of your post:
