Hi Steven,
raspberry os buster has been upgraded to kernel version 5.10.
Would it be possible to get a driver for the QBOX II (id:5920 -5922)?
Thank you,
Luc

It would be very useful if all dvb/v4l was written into the linux kernel. (i believe some dvb tuner manufacturers have already done this, their products are detected and drivers installed plug n play)

Worryingly, Libreelec next build (currently beta) does not yet include tbs or crazycat (Alveres) driver modules. I'm biting my nails that I dont lose tbs usb dvb functionality altogether.

I guess we will have to lock updates and stick to linux kernel 5.4.

Hello.
I bought a new Raspberry Pi 4 and the TBS5520SE. The kernel version of the Raspberry Pi is: 5.10.17-v7l +. Unfortunately, in headend with all the drivers provided here, the area with the adapters remains empty. Do you have any new drivers for my kernel?
Thanks a lot.

I have some TBS cards which i try to install on a CM4. I have: TBS-6982, TBS-6902 and TBS-6925. I managed to compile the drivers under Raspberry Pi OS (kernel 5.10.103-v8+), but the cards are not showing up. Even if i do a lspci, I can't see the cards, whichever I try.
Code: Select All Code
pi@cm4:~ $ lspci
pi@cm4:~ $

Code: Select All Code
pi@cm4:~ $ dmesg -T | grep pci
[Tue Mar 22 10:27:19 2022] brcm-pcie fd500000.pcie: host bridge /scb/pcie@7d500000 ranges:

The cards are working fine on x86.
If I put a PCI-E network card on CM4, it works.
What can I try?
I found this:
https://forums.raspberrypi.com/viewtopic.php?t=300061
which says to change PCI-E Gen0 to Gen1 but I don't know how to do it.

hi ,
These cards (TBS6925 TBS6982) have been discontinued for a long time, and the previous driver (kernel is v4.10 or lower) is installed, the current raspberry com4 kernel version is kernel 5.10, only the latest driver can be installed, if necessary, you can buy tbs6904se (DVBS /S2) tbs6209se(DVBC/DVBT/T2) tbs6508(DVBS/S2/DVBC/DVBT/T2) to replace, I can provide a complete kernel package, support TBS6904se tbs6209se tbs6508...

best regards!

@zhangchao : Thank you for your help, it was a really great support from your side!
It's a pity that TBS is so good on the hardware side but it's lacking support on software / drivers / linux.

For those, who are trying to install a PCI-E TBS card on Compute Module 4 + IO Board, and the card is not showing up on lspci:

Code: Select All Code
sudo cp /boot/bcm2711-rpi-cm4.dtb /boot/bcm2711-rpi-cm4.dtb.bak
dtc -I dtb -O dts /boot/bcm2711-rpi-cm4.dtb -o ~/test.dts
nano ~/test.dts

after this line:
Code: Select All Code
&pcie0 {
brcm,enable-l1ss;

insert:
Code: Select All Code
max-link-speed = <1>;

save
Code: Select All Code
dtc -I dts -O dtb ~/test.dts -o ~/test.dtb
sudo mv ~/test.dtb /boot/bcm2711-rpi-cm4.dtb

reboot and lspci.
