The following are observed for the current status of HD-2000 with latest kernel:

Although I'm new to deploying the HD-2000, the results from the latest recompiled kernel are included for reference:

%insmod dvb-bt8xx will produce the following modules:

For all of the ATSC broadcast stations in my area with known good antenna, I receive bad signal, and resultant SNR.


I'll send output of dmesg if needed.
bash-3.00$ ls /dev/dvb/adapter0/ -l

The devices are created by udev properly as seen above.
This seems to be the current status of the HD2000 in kernel.

It is my understanding that the prefered and supported interface is DVB.


Firmware is latest versions from download sections.

As may be seen from above, the results were not successful, however these are only the snapshot results of this poster at this date and time and subject to possible configuration errors.


Note: These results are believed to be representative, but may contain errors to be resolved at a later date.

This poster will endeavor to make corrections when possible to any errors reported above.

TIA.

Have you tried it with a non-bleeding edge kernel to make sure there isn't an issue with your card?

I'm going to test 2.6.14.5 or 2.6.15 this week with my HD-2000 cards on two different platforms.

Early results on 2.6.14.5 show promise: several stations were found using atscscan with dvb-bt8xx loaded. More info will follow with hopefully a success story as well.

I was successful viewing several HD Channels in the area with my HD-2000 on one platform using the dvb-bt8xx modules over the weekend on a fresh kernel 2.6.15. I plan to post more results here after I complete the review using my other platform.
( Notice this is the FULL release 2006-01-03 05:04 UTC kernel, not the former unsuccessful 2.6.15.5 RC).

I hope this information will help others who are in doubt as to the current status.

If anyone has specific request, I will try to respond in a timely manner with further details included in my final summary.
