PCLinuxOS is up to date, 32 bit. Version 126.96.36.199-pclos3

Note the last 4 digits are OOD7 the online data refers to OOD4. Looking at the online data also gives that it appears to be a Terratec Cinergy TStick black. I specifically choose it because on another radio related forum it was listed as working with GNUradio and the having best tuning range and characteristics (RTL2832U E4000 combo). There is no mention on the box of Black but the packaging agrees with the online manual for the TStick Black version not the plain TStick. My main plan is to use with GNUradio for aircraft/satellite radio tracking/reception rather than TV. As I cannot get GNUradio to install I was trying to get it to work as designed as TV receiver.
Dmsg stops logging after the kernel is running. Never used to. There is nothing at all in the kernel logs. In "messages" this is the result of plugging in device.

If it is OOD7 is that fake or an update that doesn't yet get a mention on Terratec's web site. It was sold as being Linux compatible. Any mention of Linux in online details would seem to mean it is compatible.
Sorry, it doesn't seem very helpful.
