@AndersG et al.
Does this affect you?
@AndersG et al.
Quite possibly.The card I am using uses this driver. OTOH do I have to build the drivers from linux_media anyway!
@AndersG looks like they might just remove the analog support now based on the ML thread.
Have you tried just compiling the module you need?
Yes. No analog here and the saa7146 is a PCI bridge. Someone broke out the needed modules for this card as GitHub - AlexanderS/tbsecp3-driver: TBSECP3 driver (standalone version)
It builds cleanly on my test machine and I have the same card, TBS 6281SE DVB-T/T2/C. The vendor TBS supports Linux, unlike many others.
It comes up all right after a reboot, but this is on a machine where I did the full GitHub - tbsdtv/media_build shebang. It looks promising though so I will try on my “production” machine this weekend. I guess I also need to download the required firmware files: curl -L http://www.tbsdtv.com/download/document/linux/tbs-tuner-firmwares_v1.0.tar.bz2 | tar -jxvf - -C /lib/firmware/
Funny thing is that the driver is called TBSECP, but there is no such module:
debian:~ # lsmod |grep TBSECP
debian:~ # lsmod |grep si2168
si2168 28672 2
i2c_mux 16384 2 gx1133,si2168
debian:~ # lsmod |grep si2157
si2157 28672 2
mc 61440 4 videodev,si2157,dvb_core,videobuf2_common
Oh, yes, the machine is called “debian”. I had debian briefly installed to test Kodi and the OpenSuse install picked up the name

I was mistaken. Make install errors out:
*** Missing file: arch/x86/boot/bzImage
*** You need to run “make” before “make install”.
Presumably because the files were for another distro
