TBS 5280 on linux as DVBC no frontend

TBS 5280 on linux as DVBC no frontend

Postby mitja » Wed Dec 07, 2016 9:52 pm

Hello,

I took my old dusty TBS 5280 and tried it as DVB-C receiver.
System is running on Ubuntu 16.
~$ uname -a
Linux ubuntuTV 4.4.0-31-generic #50-Ubuntu SMP Wed Jul 13 00:07:12 UTC 2016 x86_64 x86_64 x86_64 GNU/Linux

Compiled as per manual from README_TBS5280 and README_TBS6981. No errors on compiling and/or installing. Sadly, there is no frontend device in dmesg. I remember compiling it on Ubuntu 13 and it worked flawlessly but not on 16. Any idea why or what I may be missing?

Thanks.


~$ dmesg | grep TBS
[ 11.024097] input: TurboSight TBS 5280 (cx231xx) MCE IR (734c:5280) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/rc/rc0/input7

Please follow the next guide to install DVBC driver step by step:

Pay more attention to step 5.

Thanks

Hi,

Thank you for your reply. My steps are basically the same as the link you sent me. I've done that before on a lower version of Ubuntu and it worked, but on the latest 16.04 LTS is not detecting frontends.

These are my steps:
mkdir -p ~/tbs/build
cd ~/tbs
wget http://www.tbsiptv.com/download/common/ ... 161031.zip
unzip tbs-linux-drivers_v161031.zip

mkdir -p ~/tbs/
cp linux-tbs-drivers.tar.bz2 ~/tbs/build/
cp szap-s2.tar.bz2 ~/tbs/build/
cp scan-s2.tar.bz2 ~/tbs/build/
cp astra_szap-s2.conf ~/tbs/build/
cp astra_scan-s2.conf ~/tbs/build/

# (CX23885 AV core firmware, optional)
cp v4l-cx23885-avcore-01.fw ~/tbs/build/

cd ~/tbs/build/
tar xjvf linux-tbs-drivers.tar.bz2
cd linux-tbs-drivers

# remove media kernel folder
rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/*
./v4l/tbs-x86_64.sh

# enable DVB-C
./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86_64.sh

make
make install

The only thing that shows in the kernel is this:

~$ dmesg | grep front
~$ dmesg | grep TBS
[ 10.732165] input: TurboSight TBS 5280 (cx231xx) MCE IR (734c:5280) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/rc/rc0/input7
[ 10.732221] rc0: TurboSight TBS 5280 (cx231xx) MCE IR (734c:5280) as /devices/pci0000:00/0000:00:1d.7/usb1/1-4/1-4:1.0/rc/rc0
