Thanks for the workaround, I would never manage it by myself. So DVB-T works again in Kaffeine. I didn't run scan.

I have submitted a "fix".

This is a quick and very dirty workaround, it builds and it works (only tried with VLC) but it _will_ break scanning with w_scan and any other programs that support scan for channels the same way as w_scan does. It might also break programs that rely on getting the frontend status for some of their functionality.

Signal level, SNR and BER still seem to be reported but I can't confirm if the values are correct.

I can confirm that it doesn't build on linux 4.2.

The warning about USB_PID_WINFAST_DTV2000DS_PLUS being redefined would be easy to fix, but the error about fe_status_t being unknown might not be as trivial and I don't know if I can fix it myself.

To make matters worse it seems the driver that comes with the kernel is not working properly since linux 4.0 although the dev responsible for maintaining the driver can't reproduce the problems[1].

Cannot build on 4.2.1-1-ARCH. Can anybody confirm?

I'm using kernel 3.10 and I couldn't start mine DVB-t card without this driver (device wasn't recognized)... All problems with patch location were solved now? And one more question: if any of you guys managed to configure remote control with this driver (I don't even know if that is covered in this driver?

I'm using kernel 3.10 and I couldn't start mine DVB-t card without this driver (device wasn't recognized)... Is this new version of package with it's patch (did you find that patch you're usually using in this package)? And one more question: if any of you guys managed to configure remote control with this driver (I don't even know if that is covered in this driver?

I too was looking in the repos at sourceforge and I couldn't find the patch I'm using here, I could find an older one though.

What I suggest you do is try without this driver, if you are using either linux or linux-lts from the official repos there is support for the rtl2832, like Gringo says.

I'll ask on the openpli forums what happened to the patch.
