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.


  • TBS 6909 DVB-S/S2
  • TBS 6205 DVB-T/T2/C

@Scottrix: Currently the saa716x driver is not included. But I will prepare something, that you can test.

Does this driver support the TBS 6285 and TBS 6982SE ? Both have the Philips Semiconductors SAA7160 chip.

Hi AlexanderS This morning a 'pacman -Syu' updated my kernel from linux-hardened 5.5.11.a-1 to 5.5.13.a-1 (nothing else), DKMS re-built this package & then I re-booted. No errors were reported by journalctl -b (nor by dmesg). lspci -vnn now states 'kernel driver in use: TBSECP3 driver' for the TBS6281E. I can now perform a dvbv5-scan OK. This was completed before I read your last comment so I haven't followed it - so far. For my own purposes here, I am now ready to continue learning Arch+ZFS+Samba+MythTV+etc! Thank you for your attention. I will continue to monitor comments here in case there are further developments. Stay healthy.

@ck2katAUR: The missing symbols are part of dvb-core. This should be loaded automatically, but you could try to modprobe dvb-core manually.

Hi again AlexanderS. I had a go a re-building and it appeared to go OK, but the new driver will not insert. Modprobe issues error 'Unknown symbol in module' and dmesg states; [ 3.937577] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_dmxdev_init (err -2) [ 3.937588] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_ca_en50221_init (err -2) [ 3.937602] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_register_adapter (err -2) [ 3.937611] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_dmx_swfilter_packets (err -2) [ 3.937621] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_dmx_release (err -2) [ 3.937629] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_ca_en50221_release (err -2) [ 3.937638] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_net_init (err -2) [ 3.937647] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_dmxdev_release (err -2) [ 3.937655] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_frontend_detach (err -2) [ 3.937661] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_net_release (err -2) [ 3.937669] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_unregister_frontend (err -2) [ 3.937676] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_register_frontend (err -2) [ 3.937683] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_unregister_adapter (err -2) [ 3.937689] tbsecp3: Unknown symbol dvb_dmx_init (err -2) I re-tried with a completely fresh git clone but got the same result. I am now stuck at this point. Can you help?

AlexanderS commented on 2020-03-25 15:34

@ck2katAUR: I updated the driver with the files from the upstream repo. It should now build again with the current kernel.

Further to my earlier comment, I did a post on the Arch forum. See; . @loqs has kindly suggested a cause, i.e; "i2c_new_dummy() was removed with" and offered a patch. @AlexanderS; respecting your good self as the maintainer of this package, do you wish to take this forward? I would prefer to watch and learn from those who are far more experienced then me!

DKMS re-build fails after 'pacman -Syu' upgrade that includes linux-hardened update from 5.4.25.a-2 to 5.5.11.a-1. DKMS make.log indicates compilation error in; dvb-frontends/mn88436.c line:1386; "error: implicit declaration of function i2c_new_dummy" tbsecp3 module will not install & load now.
