Building the driver and firmware

Drivers are mainlined as of kernel 5.4. They can be built with media_build for older kernels.

The driver was previously provided by module dvb-usb-cxusb (from CrazyCat repository), this is now replaced by dvb-usb-dvbsky in both the mainline kernel and the official media_build. CrazyCat repo no longer works as of Debian 10, but users of older distros might have luck with it as a backup option.

Install a TV streaming server

Next install tvheadend or other streaming server.

Please note, If tvheadend is not able to find any DVBT-2 channel check if muxes frequencies matches information from your DVB-T2 provider. Also check that LNA (low noise amplifier) option is enabled on the adaptor in tvheadend settings.
