In kernel 3.4.9-1-ARCH to compile successfull must change in Makefile line 22 from /lib/modules/$(KVER)/build to /usr/lib/modules/$(KVER)/build . And compilation was successfull.

Updated the PKGBUILD to install the module into /usr/lib.

Small status update regarding remote control support:

Upstream(1) does not plant to work on making the USB tuners work as generic IR receivers since they already use/support generic receivers that work with all remotes. As it is the driver needs to be patched to support the _one_ remote that is intended to be used with the USB tuner (eg. the bundled remote).

The bundled remote should work fine if the correct mappings are patched into the driver, however other remotes may not work, this depends on the IR protocol used by the remote(2). The current package does not patch the upstream driver as it doesn't make sense, since support is specific to each type of remote. I can provide some instructions on how to get each button code and an example patch if anyone is interested.

The (better) alternative to patching the driver is to use an IR receiver that works well with LIRC and supports all remotes.

(1) The OpenPLi devs working on keeping this driving building and working with current kernels.
(2) Based on the test I have performed with the USB tuner and remotes I own.

thanks !

Updated package here [1]. It builds cleanly and works with kernel 3.3 and includes a signal strength reporting fix and 3 more supported adapters.

I will leave this package here for future reference in case the git repo starts to be updated again or some other repo appears with a better driver.

This is an updated version of [1] which compiles cleanly with kernel 3.3 and should also work with 4.4.
This also includes 3 more supported adapters and a signal strength reporting fix.

Module name is dvb_usb_rtl2832u as requested in [1].

I can reproduce the problem but solving it is beyond my capabilities. I have posted in [1] asking if there are any plans to update the driver to compile with kernel 3.3 or if there is already any code available that works.

Meanwhile there isn't much I can do and I will be in the same situation as you when linux-3.3 is moved to core.

Error while compiling for me:

You are right, linux-headers needs to be added to makedepends.

As I have linux-headers installed, building has never exploded for me. Updated pkgbuild has been submitted.

or makedepends, preferably
