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
The instructions here are a little more elaborate, although they also explicitly say that your card is not (yet) supported:
Well just above that, the page says "These instructions are taken directly from those pages, e.g. tbs' wiki. Go there for latest official word on build procedure." and if you follow the link then you will find the 6205 card listed as supported. So I suspect the linuxtv page is just out of date. Anyway, I've asked on their forum and will see what they have to say.
If it were really supported you would not have anything to do. At most, load some module or configure a file or start a service.
Yes, that's my feeling too :(
