I bought a DVBSky S952 V3 PCIe to run with DVBLink,

I keep having tunning failing for both 19.2 and 28.2.

Weirdly the name of the tuner are different “montage technology m88rs6000

I'm not sure is the driver is installed properly as when I enter :

dmesg | grep -i dvb

I have this result :

Also do I need to provide any settings other than searching for 19.2 and 28.2 channels ?

  • Could you please edit your question to include the output of lspci -nnk | grep -A3 DVBSky? Thanks. – David Foerster Jun 14 '17 at 18:30

    There's a description with a link to a firmware file in the LinuxTV wiki entry on the DVBSky S952 v3. I'll write a proper answer when this question is reopened. (Could someone please notify me about that?) – David Foerster Jun 14 '17 at 18:45
