Review of Linux Compatibility

The USB stick Cinergy HTC from TerraTec supports DVB-C as well as DVB-T. There are two revisions of this stick available, using different chipsets and hence needing different drivers.

Revision 1 – USB ID 0ccd:00b2

Support for this revision was added to the Linux kernel quite recently, therefore the stick can be used out-of-the-box only since Ubuntu 12.10. The stick has the USB ID 0ccd:00b2 and is recognized by the kernel in the following way:

Bus 001 Device 002: ID 0ccd:00b2 TerraTec Electronic GmbH

The stick is initialized by the kernel module em28xx:

em28xx: New device TERRATEC Cinergy_HTC_Stick @ 480 Mbps (0ccd:00b2, interface 0, class 0)
em28xx: Audio Vendor Class interface 0 found
em28xx: Video interface 0 found
em28xx: DVB interface 0 found
em28xx #0: chip ID is em2884
em28xx #0: Identified as Terratec Cinergy HTC Stick (card=82)
em28xx #0: Config register raw data: 0x3f
em28xx #0: I2S Audio (5 sample rates)
em28xx #0: No AC97 audio processor
em28xx #0: v4l2 driver version 0.1.3
em28xx #0: V4L2 video device registered as video0
usbcore: registered new interface driver em28xx
em28xx-audio.c: probing for em28xx Audio Vendor Class
em28xx-audio.c: Copyright (C) 2006 Markus Rechberger
em28xx-audio.c: Copyright (C) 2007-2011 Mauro Carvalho Chehab
Em28xx: Initialized (Em28xx Audio Extension) extension

The stick can be used in Ubuntu 12.04, but the kernel module em28xx has to be compiled by hand:

git clone git://
cd media_build
sudo make install

Revision 2 – USB ID 0ccd:0101

The second revision of the device looks exactly the same, but has the USB ID 0ccd:0101

Bus 001 Device 008: ID 0ccd:0101 TerraTec Electronic GmbH

and does not work with the em28xx kernel module. However, analog reception via composite is possible using the cx231xx kernel module as a driver. The following lines containing the new USB ID

{USB_DEVICE(0x0CCD, 0x0101),

have to ve added to the usb_device_id cx231xx_id_table in ./drivers/media/usb/cx231xx/cx231xx-cards.c before compiling the driver.

    A device that looks exactly the same, but with USB ID 0ccd:0101, doesn’t work with em28xx. Analog reception via composite is possible using cx231xx by adding {USB_DEVICE(0x0CCD, 0x0101),
    .driver_info = CX231XX_BOARD_CNXT_VIDEO_GRABBER},

    to the usb_device_id cx231xx_id_table in ./drivers/media/usb/cx231xx/cx231xx-cards.c

    • LHG-Team says:

      Hello Gerard,
      Thank you for this hint regarding a new revision of the TerraTec Cinergy HTC HD. Your description of a patch to the cx231xx kernel module was added to the text.
