What is a PCI ID? It is the Vendor ID and Device ID registers to identify the device, and are commonly called the PCI ID.

There are some situations when a PCI ID of the installed hardware is needed to check if the DSS V6 built in drivers supports the hardware.

In order to check the PCI ID perform the following:

  • Using DSS V6:
Go to DSS webgui -> Status -> Hardware -> Logs and download the logs.
Decompress the downloaded file and open the “test.log”. Find the “lspci -nn“ section. Now find the line referring to the hardware that you need to know if it’s supported by the build in DSS V6 drivers.

  • Using Linux:
Enter the following command in the console:
lspci -nn

You will see a list of hardware installed in your system. Here is an example:

00:18.3 Host bridge [0600]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Family 10h Processor Miscellaneous Control [1022:1203]
00:18.4 Host bridge [0600]: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD] Family 10h Processor Link Control [1022:1204]
01:00.0 VGA compatible controller [0300]: nVidia Corporation GT218 [GeForce 210] [10de:0a65] (rev a2)
01:00.1 Audio device [0403]: nVidia Corporation High Definition Audio Controller [10de:0be3] (rev a1)
02:00.0 Ethernet controller [0200]: Realtek Semiconductor Co., Ltd. RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller [10ec:8168] (rev 01)   

Please send us the line that refers to your hardware that you want to know if it’s supported.
