I’ve got a DS218+ Synology NAS drive along with a Hauppauge ‘WinTV-dualHD’ USV tv tuner (model number is 1590). I’m trying to get the two working together, however I cannot get the Synology box to recognise the tuner at all. I’ve tried using the built in ‘VideoStation’ application and ‘tvheadend’ but the device simply isn’t recognised.
Digging a bit deeper, and approaching it as a Linux driver issue instead of Synology, I found this link which describes how to install the required firmware - https://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hauppauge_WinTV-dualHD . I downloaded the dvb-demod-si2168-b40-01.fw file into ‘lib/firmware’ but it hasn’t made a difference.
Is there any advice anyone could offer? Either any experience with Synology and Hauppauge tuners, or simply diagnosing issues on a Linux setup when devices aren’t recognised.
I’ve ran ‘dmesg’ and ‘lsusb’ and the outputs can be seen below.
