[this is a repost of an item I have on the linux-media list
  I hope someone on this list can provide some advice]

I have just upgraded to f24. I am now using the standard dvb_usb_rtl28xxu fe
which logs messages suggesting all is well (I get the /dev/dvb/adapter? etc.)
but I get no channels tuned when I run mythfrontend or scandvb.

Is anyone using this combination?
Is this the correct way to use this frontend?

I also built the media tree from source but ended up with the same failure.


Until f22 I was using the out of kernel driver from
but I now get a compile error. I fixed the compile but at load time I see
an error:

Sep 18 17:38:30 e7 kernel: dvbdev: DVB: registering new adapter (Leaktek WinFast DTV2000DS PLUS)
Sep 18 17:38:30 e7 kernel: ------------[ cut here ]------------
Sep 18 17:38:30 e7 kernel: WARNING: CPU: 1 PID: 607 at drivers/usb/core/hcd.c:1587 usb_hcd_map_urb_for_dma+0x37f/0x570
Sep 18 17:38:30 e7 kernel: transfer buffer not dma capable

Must be an internal kernel API change.
