Yes, rebuilding and installing the TBS drivers is something you will
need to do every time you use a new kernel. The TBS drivers are not on
linuxtv.org and are not in the linux kernel.

Yes I think so

This is unfortunate. I confess that I am running out of options.
To summarize:
- The CAM works with the smartcard because your TV does work with the
- It cannot be a HDCP/CI+ problem because that is not used for the
Swiss national TV according to the internet.
- MythTV version fixes/30 is recent enough.

At this stage I think it is a good idea to make sure that the TBS card
does work with your CAM with other software. There is a page at
tbsdtv.com (https://www.tbsdtv.com/download/index.html?path=6&id=27)
with downloadable programs but I have not used them myself.
