Hi all.

Im quite new to android so please forgive my incompetance.

I have a gaming tablet, S7300
But i want to try my tv dongle and i have a few issues and questions.

What is the best software for viewing DVB on my Tablet?

And the main question:

My usb stick is a a brand called August. When plugges in it registers as a device "DTB03"

It seems to be very generic. I thought i found the correct firmware for it: dvb-usb-af9015.fw

But when in plug it in and out again i ran dmesg

Hers is some relevant things from log

I don't know why it is detected as keyboard, but it's the same on my dvb-t dongle.
You can ignore it, here is my dmesg output of working AF9015 dvb-t dongle:

You are missing the modules for your device.
I could post a guide how to compile these modules with v4l if you are interested.

Which kernel version do you have on your tablet? (run 'uname -a')

If you have kernel version 3.0.8 and your dongle uses af9015 firmware, follow this guide: http://www.armtvtech.com/armtvtechforum/viewtopic.php?f=13&t=902
I've got my dongle working with Finless Rom 1.7 ( kernel 3.0.8 ), the compiled modules and DroidTV at the end of the guide +MXPlayer. You have to register to download it.
But have to say it was annoying, switching channels took 10 to 30 seconds, very buggy if you don't have a clear signal.

Somehow I thought you were running picuntu while writing my last post.
So by compiling the modules with v4l (video4linux) I meant for linux.

If you run dmesg in the terminal it will show that those modules were compiled for a different kernel version. Happened to me too. I tried hex editing the module_version but got dependency errors. Finally I compiled most of the modules for my kernel it's 3.0.8+ PREEMPT.

If these don't work you'll have to find the source code for your platform and learn how to compile them preferably in a linux box. It's a PITA
