I believe there was a thread on this card. As I understand and recall the
card only works with dvb-t or dvb-t2 but you have to configure it in advance
it won't change dynamicaaly. Please check gossamer threads.


Please excuse brevity and pistakes this email was composed on a mobile

Thanks and best regards,

purchased a TBS6280 capture card for this purpose and installed it into a
machine running mythbuntu. I compiled and installed the latest drivers[1]
from the manufacturer's website and I've been able to get MythTV to tune
into the standard definition channels, but no HD ones. I followed a guide at
> I am able to receive Freeview HD channels perfectly with my TV's
integrated tuner. I see from my google searches that others have had success
with MythTV and Terrestrial HD, so what's the trick to getting MythTV to
recognise HD channels? I'm sorry for the basic nature of my question, but
I'm completely new to MythTV and DVB-T2 support seems quite new and
undocumented - I feel I may have bitten off more than I can chew.
