    Re: Tevii S660 DVB-S2 USB

    I don't know. Been reading so much on anything it could possibly be that I'm confused but I think I saw a thread somewhere saying that this was brought into kernel. So maybe that would explain the lack of a module?

    lsusb gives

    Just an update...I'm returning this device for replacement as I think it may be faulty in my case. When I get the new one I will see if things are still the same.

    @Purple8 - please let us know how you get on with an alternative kernel version.

    Re: Tevii S660 DVB-S2 USB

    This may not be any help but I have the S650. I'm not sure if there is any difference between the two from Tevii's website other then a different case as the specs are the same.

    The S650 worked for me out of the box on 9.10 once I had copied the correct fw files. I did note that an fw update broke it again by overwriting the fw files with incorrect ones.

    You may just want to double check that you are using the correct fw files, and in particular overwrite any existing ones using the ones from Tevii's website.

    UPDATE: For anyone that was having this problem I hope this helps.

    Since using the latest drivers from Tevii site (April 2010) I'm now picking up an adapter and am scanning channels.

    Re: Tevii S660 DVB-S2 USB

    Hi, I'm having some problems setting up Freesat using a Tevii s660 USB stick on a REVO with Ubuntu 10.4. I've followed the instructions on this post and downloaded the latest drivers from the Tevii site but I'm not able to scan for channels.

    To scan for free channels I enter in the terminal:
    scan -x0 /usr/share/dvb/dvb-s/Astra-28.2E | tee channels.conf

    In response I get:
    WARNING: frontend type (OFDM) is not compatible with requested tuning type (QPSK)
    ERROR: initial tuning failed
    dumping lists (0 services)
    Done.

    "grep -i dvb /var/log/messages" shows:

    Not sure what the last line is about and why it goes disconnected.

    I already use a Hauppauge Nova-TD Stick for Freeview which works fine. "grep -i dvb /var/log/messages" shows:

    Any help much appreciated to fix the Tevii s660 problem.

    Re: Tevii S660 DVB-S2 USB

    UPDATE: For anyone that was having this problem:

    "TeVii S660 USB successfully deinitialized and disconnected"

    I removed the other USB I had plugged in (DVB-T) and I can now pick up an adaptor and scan channels.

    Re: Tevii S660 DVB-S2 USB

    I was able to scan initially and could see the channels being scanned. Now I'm not able to scan. Error message:

    WARNING: frontend type (OFDM) is not compatible with requested tuning type (QPSK)
    ERROR: initial tuning failed.

    This is after I tried to reinstall the drivers from the tevii support site. Although I downloaded them I'm not sure that reinstalled the drivers as the file that downloaded looks very different from the one I downloaded the first time and the instructions don't work anymore. I'm not sure how to copy the firmware files as the readme instruction suggest (cp *.fw /lib/firmware).

    It's strange because it looks like it should be working - grep -i dvb /var/log/messages shows:

    Jul 1 20:58:50 russ-revo kernel: [ 29.081559] dvb-usb: TeVii S660 USB successfully initialized and connected.

    Can anyone tell me how to install the new drivers? Or suggest some other way to get this working?

    Re: Tevii S660 DVB-S2 USB

    Hi, can anyone give me an idiots guide to installing the new Linux drivers from the Tevii site for the S660? (http://www.tevii.com/Support.asp 5th one down on the list)

    It used to be reasonably straight forward:
    # cp *.fw /lib/firmware
    # tar xjvf linux-tevii-ds3000.tar.bz2
    # cd linux-tevii-ds3000
    # make && make install

    The files have now changed and these instructions no longer apply. Has anyone tried these new drivers on Ubuntu 10.4 and got the S660 to work?
