A dual DVB-T/DVB-T2 PCIe card from TurboSight. The manufacturer officially supports Linux, and there is on-going development of their driver, although it is supplied as a binary blob.

There is now an open source driver available at Open Source TBS drivers.

Like many other TBS cards, this one uses saa716x PCI express bridge that still isn't available in the kernel tree.

Making it Work (Closed Source)

for x86 kernel 3.x (x86 32 bit installations of kernel 3.x)
# ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86_r3.sh
for x86 kernel 2.6.x (x86 32 bit installations of kernel 2.6.x)
# ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86.sh
for any x86_64 kernel (x86 64 bit installations of Linux)
# ./v4l/tbs-dvbc-x86_64.sh
  • You can then run the make command and continue the 6280 instructions to finish compiling the driver as normal.
