[SOLVED] Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Great that it is now working. Indeed - I'm keeping my fingers crossed! I have never used the optional LNB labeling. Nor had I (but my older systems are 0.27 and earlier so I thought it may be a new 'feature') The TBS 6981 will also work without the tbsdtv drivers, on Ubuntu 16.04 and later ,as long...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Well I think I may have somehow sorted the problem. I wondered if the diseqc messages could somehow be related to MythTV 'thinking' that the tuners were sharing an LNB (when in fact each tuner attaches to a separate port of a multi-lnb), so last night I reconfigured the tuners and labelled the three...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

I'm aware of that one Mike; I've manually patched my mythtv-setup until an official fix appears. Here is the output you asked for in your previous post. I'm afraid the XML formatting has been lost. Cardids 1 and 2 are my USB tuner (set to record 2 simultaneous streams) 3 and 4 are the TBS card. At t...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Well I configured the 2 "new" tuners in my backend while 2 separate "w_scan" instances found a whole load of channels. I then kicked off a mythtv-setup channel scan and around 1000 new channels were found. Then the weirdness started again... Having found all the new channels, the backend couldn't tu...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

In a last desperate bid to achieve something tonight I just did another reboot *with the cable attached to the card* (I know it seems bizarre that it should make any difference at all) and ..... george@tvbox:~$ w_scan -f s -c GB -a 2 -s S28E2 w_scan -f s -c GB -a 2 -s S28E2 w_scan version 20141122 (...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Hmm .. that corresponds exactly to what I did, and the results (and md5sum) are the same. The only other firmware that seems to be being loaded is this: May 11 16:43:59 tvbox kernel: [ 6.922148] cx25840 9-0044: loaded v4l-cx23885-avcore-01.fw firmware (16382 bytes) -rw-r--r-- 1 george george 16382 M...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Of course it forgets to tell you how to find the symbol conflicts ("dmesg |grep -i sym" should do it) Nothing significant reported there: george@tvbox:/raid/firmware/drivers/media_build$ dmesg |grep -i sym [ 0.785669] Key type asymmetric registered [ 0.785670] Asymmetric key parser 'x509' registere...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

OK- I just rebuilt the driver and reinstalled the firmware and the result is slightly different - but still not good! ((NOTE)) it seems I can't post URLs so I'm having to use -dot-com type notation as a work around :-) First of all I got a similar boot-time output from dmesg: george@tvbox:~$ dmesg |...

Re: Help please with drivers for TBS6981 DVB-S2 on Ubuntu

Thanks Mike.
There is indeed a difference in the instructions you linked and those I followed initially.
I'm about to build and reinstall drivers and firmware from your links.
I'll post again with the outcome.
