tbs62x0fe: attach failed

I'm running Gentoo with kernel 3.10.7.

I've installed the drivers, but on startup, there appear to be errors loading the module:

Trying to actually use the device doesn't work - the frontend files in /dev/dvb/adapterN don't exist (though net, dvr and demux files do).

EDIT: Forgot to mention, using driver 130927

Hi, the error message "tbs62x0fe: attach failed" you get means hardware fault, i.e. defective card and that the driver cannot communicate and initialize the tuner on the board. so, it has nothing to do with some software problem in Linux. please, contact us on and , because it needs to be replaced with new board under the warranty. also, include information from where you purchase it. thank you.
