Finding windows driver for Vid_15a4&PID_9015

author Posted by: Tim on date May 29th, 2008 | filed Filed under: windows

For my mac I have the Equinux Tubestick but I guess there exists a lot of similar products with the same chipset. When connecting it to a windows computer it is recognised as a "DVB-T" with Device instance id "Vid_15a4&PID_9015". Google with this information gives a few hits but it is hard to find that it uses a chipset of Afatech Technologies.

Windows driver can be downloaden from http://www.afatech.com.tw/EN/support_kind.aspx?CategoryID=1 select the AF-9015

  2. /usr/sbin/QuickTimeStreamingServer: cannot execute binary file

I had a old installation on our personal server of Netatalk withouth encrypted password support. This is fine when you are on your local network and use Tiger but with Leopard this is no longer supported.

I used netatalk-2.0.3

First time I tried to install under centOS5 I got an error

cnid_index.c:277: warning passing argument 2 of 'db->stat' from incompatible pointer type
cnid_index.c:277: error: too few arguments to function 'db->stat'

after some googling I found out that this has to do with support for an outdated Berkeley DB.
