Hi guys, after some thought before going to to the DVB-T route I thought I'd rather see if I can get this working.

This guide was apparently written in 2006 by a New Zealander.

As you may know the modified drivers are long gone, but I have managed to find it after intense searching.

How would I insert those drivers into the system, and get it working properly?

I have recently accquired a SAA7134 Lifeview flyvideo 30000 card, and installed Ubuntu 12.04 on an old 80gb HDD that I acquired. Was hoping to get the scanner thing up and running.

Given that it is a tar file it could contain anything, but I am guessing it is a standard Linux 'tarball' as they are sometimes called.  This will likely contain source files and config files, which are ready and waiting for you to run a few simple 'make' commands on, to configure, compile and install to the locations deemed most appropriate for a common Linux setup.   Often as simple as:
# ./configure
# make
# make install

Tho the tar may also contain an instruction file.

This may help:


Then if you are lucky it may have installed configuration documentation someplace during the install action.
