I will re-install the non working package and try to load the needed modules manually.

Code: [Select]
MLD> modprobe saa716x_dvb
modprobe: module saa716x_dvb not found in modules.dep

So, that is the problem?
saa716x_dvb module was removed too after applying the patch?

After a long time of search, I found the reson for the missing saa716x_dvb module. There is a bug in the makefile of dvb-mb sources. It do not use its own .config file, but the config of the kernel. But in the kernel config this driver is disabled (I don't know why).
I don't know how to fix the dvb-mb makefile, but enable the driver in the kernel makefile for a test. Now you can try the unstable dvb-mb package.
Later I will activate the driver in the kernel makefile as hotfix.

Thanks a lot Claus for your effort.
I know this device is bit hard to make it work as it's not supported by mainline kernel
(maybe that's why saa716x_dvb is disabled in kernel .config)
The thing is saa716x_dvb module is compiled just fine without applying the patch.  :-\
Unfortunately my kernel is 5.3.11.202.34 MLD unstable uses 5.3.11.202.33.
I can restore MLD testing snapshot, is it possible to build dvb-mb package for testing?

I have now checkin the changes on the kernel config. If you now rebuild your kernel and dvb-mb package, you will get the driver also with enabled patch. In a view hours you can also use the testing kernel and dvb-mb package. And maybe also the dvb package will work for your dvb card.

No problem, i can wait till dvb-mb package is available for testing then i will restore a testing snapshot.
By the way, if you check my previous post, there are other needed modules
like cx24117, tas2101.

Now you can test the testing kernel and the dvb and also the dvb-mb package.

Well done Claus  :)
The dvb card works with dvb and dvb-mb packages, Vielen Dank!
I will stick with dvb-mb though.

Code: [Select]
MLD> dvb-fe-tool
Device STV090x Multistandard (/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0) capabilities:
     CAN_2G_MODULATION
     CAN_FEC_AUTO
     CAN_INVERSION_AUTO
     CAN_MULTISTREAM
     CAN_QPSK
DVB API Version 5.11, Current v5 delivery system: DVBS2
Supported delivery systems:
     DVBS
    [DVBS2]
     DSS
SEC: set voltage to OFF
ERROR    FE_SET_VOLTAGE: Operation not permitted

I see no saa716x_dvb module because it was renamed to saa716x_budget.

Oh sorry  :)
It's :
saa716x_budget in dvb package.
saa716x_dvb in dvb-mb package.

There was a difficulty removing dvb package because there is no /etc/modprobe.d/custom.conf.

Too bad Technisat stopped producing this dvb card, it's one of my favorites.
Anyway, if anyone still interested to buy it, perhaps you find a used card on ebay.de.
