Can't get DiSEqC from TBS6504 to work in linux

Postby bobben » Thu Apr 21, 2022 3:55 am

Hi,

My TBS6504 card does seem to have a problem with DiSEqC 1.0 (linux ubuntu 20.04). I am using this guide for driver installation https://github.com/tbsdtv/linux_media/wiki

Have tried several different brand DiSEqC 1.0 switches but it does not help.

I have also a TBS6903 and TBS6908 that works well with my DiSEqC 1.0 switches but I would really like to use DiSEqC in TBS6504.

Did use dvblast and tsduck to test DiSEqC switching but still no success with TBS6504.

Any suggestions for solutions would be appriciated.

Be aware that the TBS6504 drivers seems to be successfully installed. Card works well with all inputs and for both DVB-T and DVB-S/S2 and has been working for a few years but the desire to use diseqc switch has not been there until now. It is only the diseqc part that will not control my diseqc switches ( tested three different diseqc 1.0 four port switches).


I have run dmesg | grep 'TBS':

The TBS6504 card also behaves strange in Windows10. Can not get diseqc to work. Maybe
there is a failed component.

I have swapped around my TBS demodulator cards and use a different card with the diseqc switch. I prefer not to use more time/attempts to get diseqc working on my TBS6504.
