This is groin grabbingly simple to get going….
Check if you have the same hardware by doing a lsusb, you should see something like this.
2040:2011 Hauppauge WinTV MiniCard [Dell Digital TV Receiver]
Install the firmware onto your system.
cp sms1xxx-hcw-55xxx-dvbt-02.fw /lib/firmware/.
Open synaptic and install metv.
Reboot, check your dmesg to see if the firmware is loaded.
If it checks out ok the you can open metv and strart the tuning wizard. Use an outdoor antenna, the little one supplied is crap.
Thats it, enjoy!
