Need to make sure "dvb-usb-tbsqbox-id5922.fw is installed also.

You might have bulk installed that when you installed your prof 7500 firmware.

I am running a TBS5922 with v4l-updatelee kernel. Runs in updateDVB and tune-s2. I do have to change the SR to 20,000 in tune-s2 to LOCK a signal; won't lock with SR 1000.

Thanks for the help guys....but still a no go. There is nothing in the az builds that seems to reflect any of the above.  I will keep searching.

Still struggling.....total linux moron here. Can somebody list the actual file names of what is needed...is it tas2101.ko? or av201x.ko? ...does anybody have a build of these/those files that I can at least try even if compiled for something else. I'd really appreciate the help and dummy talk that I can understand [smile] Thanks!



Prof                                            TBS5922SE
dvb-usb-p7500.fw                       dvb-usb-tbsqbox-id5923.fw (23 = se) INSTALLED
Kernel-Module-STVO900              tas2101 ????
Kernel -Module-dw2102               av201x module ?????

I know that there are something like this  ljalves package and UDL

But  i have no clue as to what to do with what etc.

you really need to talk to the developer of the azbox minime's kernel
to see what is needed to compile that kernel with the opensource tbs drivers.
The reason it's not in there now is because the azme developer likely just took the vanilla linux kernel, and compiled it for that cpu, whatever it is.
The vanilla kernel from kernel.org doesn't come with tbs drivers at all far as I know.
And that's because official TBS linux support is limited to binary blobs, and
compiling a special tree available at the tbs support website, similar to what media_build_udl does I think.

compiled kernel modules have a file extension of .ko
and if you wish to find them in linux, they should be located in
/lib/modules/4.1.0-rc3+/kernel

replace 4.1.0-rc3+ with the output of uname -r from your system...
more specifically for the media drivers, look in
/lib/modules/4.1.0-rc3+/kernel/drivers/media

for the av2101 tuner module, you'd look in
/lib/modules/4.1.0-rc3+/kernel/drivers/media/tuners
for av201x.ko
so if you look in that directory, you can do
'file av201x.ko' and that will tell you what type of file it is..
example below is obviously compiled for a 32 bit i386 processor
Code:
/lib/modules/4.1.0-rc3+/kernel/drivers/media/tuners > file av201x.ko
av201x.ko: ELF 32-bit LSB  relocatable, Intel 80386, version 1 (SYSV), BuildID[sha1]=94afd7226dc7770be2322f47735d06d92ae30bb1, not stripped

the ripper It is the only developer it.and it has long ceased to develop Kernel for AzBox (models HD,Me,miniMe) I do not think you find who change Kernel.  You can be the team OpenATV. luck

Yes, I'd also suggest an email to the maintainer of the system that you download and install to run on your receiver.  They will be setup with the proper cross compiler tool chain to compile these modules.  It wouldn't be a huge ordeal for them to compile the modules and release them in a zip file or something.  

Edit: I see from the previous post that probably isn't an option.

At some point in the future I might be able to cross compile the modules, but don't have the time to spend on it at the moment.  I think I've successfully done it in the past, just takes a while to research the unit itself to know the processor, then find the right kernel source used by the maintainer, download and build the cross compiler tool chain....   you get the idea.

Thx lilo, personally I could care less. I don't own any Az, much less an Me.
I am just trying to explain to Mountaineer why what he's trying to do isn't gonna work..

Already mention was the tuner demod stuff, but here I looked some more of it up, to help maybe Later on down the road
I was thinking if the Genpix works some what with the Cypress USB bridge, Maybe its not that far off to get the right tuner/demod working with TBS card.
Maybe is there a Kernal Log? to look at in the AZbox to see whats happening when devices are plugged into the USB port 

Genpix
Tuner BCM3440 
Demod 4500
USB bridge ?? Cypress I think?  

TBS 5922
Tuner AV2011
Demod  TMAX Tas2100
USB bridge CY7C68013  (thats Cypress)

The 5922 and 5922se are different.   https://github.com/ljalves/linux_media/wiki

TBS drivers can't go on an azbox because there are no compiled  binary blobs in their package for the architecture.

The https://github.com/ljalves/linux_media media tree has open source drivers, it's just a matter of cross compiling them for the azbox architecture.  Cross compiling is not entirely simple.

In the long run if you already have usb tuners I'd say you will have a much nicer time building a media PC to run it all.  Last one I built was about $200 CDN in parts using a salvaged case and PS.  You'll be a lot cheaper in the USA.  Fanless ASRock mobo with quad 1.99GHz, 4Gb ram and 120Gb SSD.  Very low power. Boots up super quick.  Can be totally silent if you opt for a PICO fanless PS.  I use my tablet for a remote.   Intel video has hdmi for TV. Serves TV over the LAN to pretty much anything from tablets, laptops, smart TVs. 

When your azboxes die that's what I would really recommend since you already have the USB tuners.  The newer boards also do h.265, but I got an older one as I wanted to keep a couple PCI cards. My Prof 7301 and and Delta sound card.  I have an extra USB3 PCIe card to run my external USB HDs with all my movies and TV recordings.

If you been toying with getting a Raspberry Pi 2 Bthis would be a good time.

This is a screenshot of my RPi2B running my TBS5922 on 125 W Screenshot - 08232015 - 02:55:09 PM.png .

In fact I posted this using IceWeasel on my Pi.

Every hands on satellite person should have a "Pi in the Sky" running updateDVB.

bluzee's system is better though so go with that if you want a new computer.
If you want to cross compile for your Azbox go with a full computer also.

For just playing around I have two RPi2b's and thinking of getting more. These are very good learning tools.

it wont even do first command. "no such file" or something similar.

WIll this process combine the .h and .c files together into a .ko file?

well, what you are trying to do I gather is to compile it.
But what you need to do is "cross compile" it for the CPU that is in the stb, you can't just compile it for your computer and expect it to run in the stb. Doesn't work that way. As they have a completely different architecture and a completely different set of CPU instructions (A.K.A instruction set).
But having said that, it is good practice to compile it for your computer. In other words,
kinda like ya need to learn how to walk before ya can learn to run...
Even experienced developers may have issues cross-compiling for another target CPU.

That is what I'm attempting to do, learn on just a compile, then use a cross compiler to do it again. I found a page about the sigma compiler from azbox...2009..so I'm not sure if that includes the ME/MINI or not. STill researching, practicing, and asking questions.

 Thanks for your help!
