Astrometa DVB-T2 linux no driver? WARNING device dvb0.frontend1 not found

Post by giorgijag » Wed Feb 13, 2019 6:32 am

I bought astrometa DVB-T2 usb tuner. On windows 10 everything working perfect.

I want to use in Ubuntu, but seems there is some problem, but don't know what:

Please help me figure out what is the problem.

W_scan :

~$ w_scan -ft -c GE
w_scan -ft -c GE
w_scan version 20170107 (compiled for DVB API 5.10)
using settings for GEORGIA
Country identifier GE not defined. Using defaults.
scan type TERRESTRIAL, channellist 4
output format vdr-2.0
WARNING: could not guess your codepage. Falling back to 'UTF-8'
output charset 'UTF-8', use -C <charset> to override
Info: using DVB adapter auto detection.
main:4007: FATAL: * NO USEABLE TERRESTRIAL CARD FOUND. *
Please check wether dvb driver is loaded and
verify that no dvb application (i.e. vdr) is running.

$ lsmod | grep dvb

There are some notes about getting the Astrometa to work in this topic see viewtopic.php?f=29&t=1582&p=12149&hilit ... eta#p12149

To get the firmware (it is available in a number of places), if missing (check to see if file dvb-demod-mn88473-01.fw is present in /lib/firmware)
wget http://palosaari.fi/linux/v4l-dvb/firmw ... 8473-01.fw
sudo mv dvb-demod-mn88473-01.fw /lib/firmware/
Note you should reboot at this point

Assuming you have not yet swapped the frontends try w_scan -ft -c GE -a /dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend1

What version of Ubuntu and which kernel, the following terminal commands will give the information
lsb_release -a
uname -a

Note Ubuntu 18.04 does not have a file named /etc/rc.local, you need to create it and make sure it is executable.
