Does anyone have any experience getting the TBS 6985 ot 6984 working on ubuntu?

I am beating my head against the wall with this.  I have tried building and installing the drivers multiple times, reinstalled ubuntu multiple times and tried many guides all without success.  I've tried both 12.04 LTS and 13.10 just incase it was a kernel issue.

The closest I've had using 'dmesg | grep frontend' was four errors in place of the four tuners.  Usually I just get nothing.  The intended endgame is a Tvheadend media/tv server with four xbmc frontends.

What success stories do people have?  Did anyone have problems?  If so how did you solve them?


Apologies for the lack of logs, I'm currently at work.

Great to hear. Sounds like a card I want to have a play with. Where did you source it from?

www.tbsdtv.com is the official website of Turbosight who created the TBS line of cards. I use 2 x TBS 6981 in my TVServer.
