xc5k -- Inter IC (I2C) modules for DTV
The dtviic modules provide support for dtv(4) devices. The dtviic module
group includes tuners, demodulators, and analog video decoders.
The usual hardware structure consists of a host controller (connected for
instance via usb(4) or pci(4)) that provides the data moving facilities
(for the analog or digital video streams) and an iic(4) bus over which
the other chips can be configured.
For example, a typical dtv(4) setup would look like this:
1. Initialize transport stream (TS) port on the host controller.
2. Configure the demodulator that ``demodulates'' the information
from an intermediate frequency (IF) that is provided to it by
the associated tuner. This step typically includes setting
the desired quadrature amplitude modulation (QAM) and band-
width, among other things.
3. Configure the tuner. Typically this step includes at least
setting the frequency.
4. Start TS transfer (using DMA transfers or USB high speed

· dvb-fe-nxt2004.fw needed by nxt2k
· xc3028-v27.fw or xc3028L-v36.fw (provided by
pkgsrc/sysutils/xc3028l-firmware) needed by xc3028
· dvb-fe-xc5000-1.6.114.fw needed by xc5k, provided by the
dtv(4), iic(4), module(7)
The dtviic modules first appeared in NetBSD 6.0.
