My Hauppauge WinTV Ministick doesn't work on 16.04.3. As the linux-firmware-nonfree isn't supported anymore, I installed the driver myself in /lib/firmware. I found the file sms1xxx-hcw-55xxx-dvbt-02.fw here.
The adapter worked fine with Ubuntu 14.04 with the same firmware (and works today in windows too). So it is not a problem due to the adapter but it seems to be a problem between the firmware and the new kernel.
The driver is recognized by dmesg (see below) but with kaffeine it doesn't work :
- It is able to find the channels,
- But when I try to see a channels, the screen becomes blank and the system crashes !
Can someone help me ?
Thank you !
