Hi all

Here is the detail steps to install the linux driver
Down load the latest version on our download page
http://www.tbsiptv.com/download/common/tbs-linux-drivers_v170206.zip

Installed the driver for tbs card
1.extract tbs-linux-drivers_*.zip archive:
# unzip tbs-linux-drivers_*.zip

2.extract linux-tbs-drivers.tar.bz2 archive:
# tar xjvf linux-tbs-drivers.tar.bz2

3. go to driver package directory:
# cd linux-tbs-drivers

4. set platform , use " getconf LONG_BIT " to get the bit of the system. use "uname -r " to get the version of the kernel.
4.1 x86 32 bit
****4.1.1 for x86 kernel 2.6.x (x86 32 bit installations of kernel 2.6.x):
******** #./v4l/tbs-x86.sh
****4.1.2 for x86 kernel 3.x (x86 32 bit installations of kernel 3.x):
******** #./v4l/tbs-x86_r3.sh
4.2 x86 64 bit (do not forget to delete your kernel version media folder)
******** #./v4l/tbs-x86_64.sh
************ #uname -r
************ 3.10.0-327.13.1.el7.x86_64
************ #sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/*
5. if install for DVBC (if install for DVBS/S2 or DVBT/T2 , skip this step, go to step 6)

# ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86_64.sh

6. compile driver source.

After installing these drivers to the tbs6904 card, the mt4170 card stops working, it looks like there is no af9035 module in these drivers. Can i update it? I can not help running the tbs6904 and mt4170 on linux ubnt 16. I would like help.
