@AlexanderS That folder is not empty (which didn't surprise me as I had to manually delete it every time I upgraded the kernel). However, modinfo does show tbsecp3 so it looks like this one is being used. Thanks!

@elParaguayo You can check if /usr/lib/modules/$(uname -r)/extramodules/v4l/ is empty and if the output of modinfo saa716x_core contains "tbsecp3-driver-git" in the path of the module.

@AlexanderS So, I've uninstalled tbs-linux_media-git-dkms and installed this one, rebooted and the tuner is working. Build time was way way quicker which is amazing. Thank you. Only question is how can I tell if it's the new modules that are loaded? I had to use dkms --force on the previous one so I don't know if a pacman -R completely removes this or not.

@Scottrix @elParaguayo

I have added the saa716x modules (and the required frontends and tuners). Can you try, if this is working for your cards?.

@AlexanderS. No probs about the delay. I've rebuilt and tested the driver that you've just updated against kernel version: 5.8.11.a-1-hardened and we seem to be back in business now! Thank you for your attention to this.

@ck2katAUR Sorry for the delay, I updated the driver with the current source from the upstream driver. It should be compatible with the current kernel, now.

Hi AlexanderS. Upgraded my system today. This included a kernel update; linux-hardened (5.7.19.a-1 -> 5.8.9.a-1). This driver failed to rebuild with the pacman log stating;

dkms install --no-depmod -m tbsecp3-driver-git -v r20200325.043528.caea324 -k 5.8.9.a-1-hardened
Error! Bad return status for module build on kernel: 5.8.9.a-1-hardened (x86_64)
Consult /var/lib/dkms/tbsecp3-driver-git/r20200325.043528.caea324/build/make.log for more information.

The only error that I can find in; make.log is;

/var/lib/dkms/tbsecp3-driver-git/r20200325.043528.caea324/build/tbsecp3/tbsecp3-dvb.c: In function ‘tbsecp3_frontend_attach’:

    |                  ^~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Please could you look into this and advise corrective action - thank you.

Hi AlexanderS, should TBS5520SE be compatible with this driver?

elParaguayo commented on 2020-05-27 07:30

Hi AlexanderS, is there any update on the saa716x driver? I'm having some issues with tbs-linux_media-git-dkms so it would be great if that driver could be included here. I've got the TBS 6280 (dual DVB-T/T2) tuner.

Nice work @AlexanderS: tested with linux-lts 5.4.30.
