Ubuntu and a Yakumo QuickStick DVB-T

When you like to run a Yakumo QuickStick DVB-T on Ubuntu Gutsy Gibbon (7.10 – I used Tribe 4), please do the following:

Install Ubuntu with plugged in Yakumo QuickStick DVB-T and the OS will recognize and add the necessary firmware (/lib/firmware/2.6.22-9.generic/dvb-usb-wt220u-02.fw) for that device (maybe you need to add it manually when you insert the device later or have problems with loading the correct firmware (dmesg) – search for the firmware name in the web or here LinuxTV).

The LED will flash amber now!

Add via Synaptic Package Manager the applications/libraries Kaffeine 0.8.5  and the libxine1-ffmpeg from the repository.

Start Kaffeine, accept the default settings and choose ‘6 Digital TV’ from the Start Panel.

Select ‘DVB’ – ‘Channels…’

Press Start Scan and wait…

When all the channels are found, press on ‘Select All’ – ‘<< Add Selected’ – ‘Done’

Now Enjoy it!
