PCTV Systems Announces Linux Support for the 'PCTV tripleStick 292e'

LinuxTV.org is now distributing Linux drivers for the three-in-one DVB-T / DVB-T2 / DVB-C TV receiver

HAUPPAUGE, N.Y. — PCTV Systems SARL, a division of Hauppauge Digital Inc., has announced today that LinuxTV.org has published open source Linux drivers for the PCTV tripleStick 292e.

The PCTV tripleStick 292e can receive unencrypted HD cable and terrestrial broadcasts from DVB-T, DVB-T2 and DVB-C. The tripleStick 292e was designed to deliver excellent TV reception in the smallest size possible and is an higher performance successor to the former model, the PCTV nanoStick T2 290e, which was a  DVB-T and DVB-T2 only stick.

The three TV formats supported by the tripleStick 292e, DVB-T, DVB-T2 and DVB-C, are the most popular "free-to-view" TV formats in countries such as the UK, Germany, France and Italy.

The PCTV tripleStick 292e drivers are now part of the Linux kernel 3.17 and committed to the LinuxTV.org Media Tree which can be found at: http://git.linuxtv.org/media_tree.git.

The new Linux support provided by LinuxTV.org will make it easy to integrate the 292e into Linux systems. End users who build and maintain their own Linux systems only need to upgrade to Linux kernel 3.17 in order to have support for the tripleStick 292e. PCTV Systems also provides the tripleStick 292e to OEM and system integrators and can help provide information needed to back port the tripleStick 292e driver to older kernels.

DVBLogic, a European developer of TV applications for NAS drives, uses the PCTV 292e Linux support in their TVSource application to deliver networked live TV for Western Digital and Synology NAS drives.

PCTV Systems SARL is headquartered in Braunschweig, Germany and is the leading European manufacturer of high definition TV receivers for Windows and Linux systems. PCTV Systems has been a subsidiary of Hauppauge Digital since 2009.

In addition to Linux, there is also Windows support for the PCTV tripleStick 292e which includes the TVCenter 6 application to watch, pause and record live DVB-C, DVB-T or DVB-T2 TV on a PC or laptop. TVCenter 6 also supports remote TV viewing with the included DistanTV application, which provides watching TV on mobile devices like tablets or smartphones.

The retail price of the PCTV 292e is 59,95EUR and is available at Media Markt, Saturn and Amazon in Germany. In the UK, the 292e has a suggested retail price of 49.95 £ and is available through Amazon UK.
