I just got my TBS6205 card and started trying to install it and mythtv. I'm a bit worried by the ReadMe.txt that comes with the TBS6205 driver zip. It starts with:
#sudo rm -rf /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/
which seems like a rather drastic thing to do. Is that a normal thing to do?
That does sound like overkill. Those modules will likely be rebuilt, but still.
The file then goes on to say:
#tar jxvf media_build-2018-0206.tar.bz2 #cd media_build #./install.sh #reboot
#dmesg | grep tbsversion
Sounds like building the kernel module. You'll need to install the kernel source, if you haven't already.
I'm waiting to be approved to post a question on the TBS forum but I thought I'd ask here first. The good news is that the card is installed and listed by lspci and that mythtv appeared to install OK from YaST.
