It's important to keep your driver and software updated.

TBS5922 qbox on Linux 18.04

I am hoping someone can help me....

I am trying to install the drivers for the 5922 and 5922SE usb boxes onto Xubuntu 18.04. I have previously had both running on 14.04, but the install now fails with the following message:

Please try our latest open source driver :
or this open source offline package :
#wget ... 22.tar.bz2
# sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/
#tar jxvf media_build-2018-0822.tar.bz2
#cd media_build


Kind Regards
