Great that it is now working.

I have never used the optional LNB labeling.
On my systems with TBS 6981 it has always just worked.

The TBS 6981 will also work without the tbsdtv drivers, on Ubuntu 16.04 and later ,as long as the firmware dvb-fe-cx24117.fw is in /lib/firmware/.

I use the tbsdtv opensource drivers as I also have a TBS 6280 card (dual DVB-T/T2) in my production system.

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')

If only I'd realised at the start that the required firmware was missing I'd have explored that further and perhaps not got myself into this tangle :-)

You've been a huge help Mike and it is much appreciated.
Thanks again.
George
