I hope that someone will be able to provide some help for me on the TBS6284 T2 quad tuner card.
I use this card along with a FireDTV S2 tuner card in mythtv 0.25 running on Linux Mint 13 both cards work really well and I have no complaints
However when I reboot my system the order of the devices changes randomly e.g. initial set-up may have FireDTV on adapter 0 with TBS6284 on adapter 1 to 4 then following reboot FireDTV could be on adapter 1 with TBS6284 on adapter 0, 2 to 4 etc.
This obviously confuses mythtv when it is looking for an S2 card on adapter 0 and finds a T2 card instead
From the research I have done (see links below) I have established that I should be able to create symbolic links to each of the individual tuners which would fix this issue in mythtv.

The main issue here is that I cannot find any unique identifiers that would differentiate the individual tuners on the TBS6284 T2 quad tuner card when running the command:-
- Code: Select all
udevadm info -a -p $(udevadm info -q path -n /dev/dvb/adapter0/dvr0)
and repeating the command for adaptors 1 to 4.
Can anyone advise if there are any unique identifiers for this card that I might have missed?
I also note in the above links that for dual tuner cards with identical identifiers clever use is made of an IF - Then - ELSE statement to split out the two tuners.
Is there something similar that could be applied to quad tuner cards?
As a last option (which looks like a neater solution and would work for me) is to edit the /etc/modprobe.d/dvb.conf file and insert the line:-
- Code: Select all
options xxxx adapter_nr=101,102,103,104
Unfortunately I do not know what 'xxxx' would be for the TBS6284.
Can anyone help?
I see that some progress appears to have been made on the TBS6984 tuner card.
Thanks in advance for any assistance.
