tbs5990 upset on linux driver support

Postby highkick05 » Sun Jan 24, 2016 4:53 pm

Hi , I am very unhappy of this product has no updated linux drivers into current kernel from 6 years ago.

I don't even think this device was made 6 years ago, no it was only manufactured I think couple years ago.

Why tbs ? This is bad support for your hardware. please update drivers so they work with other devices in linux !

The results is you can't use it along with other hardware in linux, this is very poor bad compatibility

Hi higkick05, TBS drivers works with un newest kernels, I test it un kernel versión 4.3.
Yesterday I helped a user to install drivers of other devices.
I don't know what do you need install, but maybe I can hepl you.

Kind regards

Thank for response

I need the avermedia volar green HD dvb-t stick to work with tbs5990 dvb-s driver

It works in all default media_build , default openelec and kernels. Just not with tbs drivers.

I was surprised bcos support for this is good. Appreciate if you can help

Any luck getting the Avermedia 835B it into the mainline tbs drivers ?

Why can't TBS just build your linux drivers like windows drivers ?

I don't understand why you continue to support your linux drivers like this. Why do you keep backport to old kernel base, you leave out many needed hardware

Hi highjick05, I'm not at home, I'll back in few day and I'll try again with other drivers.
And please, tell me, which OS and kernel are you using?
Kind regards.
