Raspberry Pi Support for Hauppauge TV tuners

Hauppauge technical support has been testing with the Raspberry Pi Model B+, not the current Raspberry Pi 2. All performance should be increased with newer model of the Raspberry Pi.

WinTV-HVR-955Q

Raspbian Jessie The current version of Raspbian Jessie comes with Kernel 4.1 and it already includes support for the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-955Q.

Raspbian can be downloaded from https://www.raspberrypi.org/downloads/raspbian/

Please check the Raspberry Pi community on how to install and run an operating system on the Raspberry Pi.

All you need to do is connect the WinTV-HVR-955Q to a USB port on the Raspberry Pi.

You will also need the firmware which is not included with Raspbian Jessie. You can download the Conexant cx231xx USB firmware v4l-cx231xx-avcore-01.fw for the WinTV-HVR-955Q from Linuxtv.org http://linuxtv.org/downloads/firmware/#conexant You will need to copy the firmware file to /lib/firmware and reboot the system. That is all you need to load the TV tuner firmware and get the WinTV-HVR-955Q device detected.

OpenElec

The current version of OpenELEC 6.0.1 Kernel also has support out of the box for the WinTV-HVR-955Q.

OpenELEC can be downloaded from http://openelec.tv/get-openelec

Please check the OpenELEC community on how to install and run an operating system on the Raspberry Pi.

All you need to do is connect the HVR-955Q to a USB port on the Raspberry Pi.

The firmware is already included nothing else needs to be done to get the HVR-955Q detected.
