Make it work

tm6000 module autodetection not working on satbox because most tm6000 devices have same 6000:0001 numbers and satbox one of them it's has 6000:0001 tm6000 module must be loaded with "card=0" option it will detect satbox as Unknown tm6000 video grabber and will be work as video grabber without dvb-s

Device Issues

  • A 75ohm terminator to be connected to the LNB-Out connector for better stability
