LibreELEC 8.x images for additional dvb drivers

  • The error says that the storage Path is not found - this is due the LiveBoot. You could do it manually. Just create dvb-drivers.txt in downloads.
    In the dvb-drivers.txt needs to be one of this.


    Code
    1. 4.4.7-tbs
    2. 4.4.7-tbs-dvbc
    3. 4.4.7-crazycat
    4. 4.4.7-ljalves-cc
    5. 4.4.7-media_build


    But you have to look that you write this in this file without ANY space character or line ending.

  • Thanks CvH for the help.


    What I tried did not work, so I will wait a little while until the repo settles down and do a fresh install at that time.



    I have a query ....... if I install the official TBS drives at some point, but later I want to try the llajves drivers will that be possible using the same DVB-Driver interface or would it need to be done manually?


    Thank you and the other devs for your work on LE.

    You just need to click on an driver in the addon -> reboot and you have everything ready.


    VDR didn't care and at Tvheadend you need to redo the hardware selection at dvb inputs windows due that the name of the devices have been changed.

  • hello CVH
    I have a question about the latest version LE (Generic.x86_64-6.95.1-dvb-drivers-1.0.1.tar)
    Is this version LE (media_build) contains uvc drivers ? ...
    I think you know why :-)..... can supplement docker help installations needed several programs
    If so, try to play with the program docker .... although I'm not too good at linux
    regards!

  • Unfortunately not

    I just want to report back after my clean LE-installation (of this 1.01 customimage). All went fine but I got the same errormessage as JohnBoyz, the workaround that CvH pasted here did the trick for me (the .txt file was missing).

    I now have everything up and running again. Smooth installation and my
    TBS5680 (usb) worked instantly after installing the Crazycat driver :D

  • Hello guys.


    Great job.
    I've been trying to get a TBS5220 Cable USB tuner working ina Raspberry Pi two following a thread at openelec forum.


    Still in OpenElec I did manage to have the USB tuner recognized usin ljalves .tar file to update but after that "small victory" I can't tune any DVB-C channel.
    It's not a TVH issue since, with the same setup, I've manage to tune DVB-C channels with another USB tuner (Geniatech T230).


    Do you plan to also support Raspberry Pi2 for LibreElec 7.0 with this great way to change drivers?


    Thank you.

    At the moment a lot stuff is hardcoded (it is a bit effort to build an RPi image because I have to change a lot) - I was a bit in time problems due the release date of LE.
    So I wanted at first let you try something and find possible bugs and if its stable port it to RPi. Later I do the code better that it can easily ported to every platform :)

    Thank you for you time and effort.
    For the first time with LibreElec update to OpenElec - I had a x64 computer with TBS5220 doing it's job and tuning all channels :cool:
    One day I'm sure it will work with RPi2/3.

  • Is there any chance the Rpi build will support the TBS5590? After buying this USB tuner I realized the linux support from TBS is pretty much useless, especially for ARM devices.

  • Are you sure that it is a TBS 5590? Because the TBS website doesn't know this card.



    Could he perhaps mean the TBS5990?


    Did you see we got it up and working on here  CvH


    Not sure but they just gave up after they got basic functionality, still won't do 1080P ...
