Hi!

You could try following on command line (works on my Hauppauge-card):

dvb-fe-tool -a <adapter-nr> -d "<delivery system>"

like:
dvb-fe-tool -a 2 -d "DVBC/ANNEX_A"

To get a list of supported delivery systems just set the adapter-nr like:
dvb-fe-tool -a 2

Output:
Device Silicon Labs Si2168 (/dev/dvb/adapter2/frontend0) capabilities:
CAN_2G_MODULATION
CAN_FEC_1_2
<removed> ...
CAN_QPSK
CAN_TRANSMISSION_MODE_AUTO
DVB API Version 5.10, Current v5 delivery system: DVBC/ANNEX_A
Supported delivery systems:
DVBT
DVBT2
[DVBC/ANNEX_A]

Hi all,

I've recently adquired a TBS5520 tuner and I can watch DVB-T and DVB-S in Windows 10 x64 through SichboPVR. I also can switch succesfully between both TV systems with the Windows utility downloaded from TBS drivers page. But I cannot switch between both TV systems in Linux. I only can wath DVB-S through Kaffeine. The frontend offered by the Linux driver only can work with DVB-S. How can I switch to DVB-T too?

Thanks.

Hi all,

I've just updated to the new drivers 160405 and it appears that DVB-T, DVB-S and DVB-C switching cannot be performed yet or if it's possible the way doesn't write down in any place ...

So nowadays TBS5520 is ONLY FULLY working on Windows ... On Linux it only works DVB-S/DVB-S2 ... isn't it? Sad ...

try open-sourcve driver with multistandard tuner/frontend driver for TBS 5520 - https://bitbucket.org/CrazyCat/media_build

P.S. ISDB-T support not implemented yet. Only DVB-S/S2, T/T2 and cable.

Hi crazycat,

Could you please post the installation steps to build the repo and the drivers? Which distro do you prefer for testing the drivers?
Could you please post the kernel version and the distro you use to test your repo?

Usual media_build, installation procedure in README.
some like this:
Code: Select All Code
git clone https://bitbucket.org/CrazyCat/media_build.git
cd media_build
./build
sudo make install


Build script download latest sources snapshot, apply patches for current kernel and make. For developer purposes possible use sources from git media_tree with --main-git or --git options.
If you need include some staging media drivers (legacy lirc, unfinished frontend drivers and etc) use included script install.sh after first build.
This install.sh:
Code: Select All Code
#!/bin/bash

# Enable some staging drivers
make stagingconfig

echo "V4L drivers building..."
make -j4

echo "V4L drivers installing..."
sudo rm -r -f /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/media
sudo rm -r -f /lib/modules/$(uname -r)/kernel/drivers/staging/media

sudo make install

echo "V4L drivers installation done"
echo "You need to reboot..."
