Hi all
Sorry my English is very poor
My HW
MotherBoard
CPU
TBS6909 DVB-S2 8 Tuner PCIe Card
TBS 6925 PCI-E DVB-S2 TV Tuner Card
Last Proxmox VE

I want to use DVB cards either VM or LXC
I installed the last proxmox
Identification devices in proxmox (host)
Code:
lspci
07:00.0 Multimedia controller: TBS Technologies DVB-S2 4 Tuner PCIe Card
08:00.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7160 (rev 03)
Then I installed the driver (without errors)
If I write in terminals
Code:
dmesg | grep frontend
I should see the available adapters, but I see nothing. The directory /dev/dvb/ does not exist.
Then I found that I need to secure boot disable
When I set up secureboot disable, after reboot is always secure boot enable (hmm).
I tryied
Code:
sudo apt install mokutil
sudo mokutil --disable-validation
and after entering and confirming password
I see
Code:
Failed to request new SB state
1. In proxmox I installed the last ubuntu server (VM)
2. Stop VM
3. Add > PCI device https://imgur.com/a/ZffBjCT
4. Start VM
Proxmox not booting (The cursor flashes on the monitor).
Reinstall proxmox
I tried to configure manually.
Stop VM
Code:
/etc/pve/qemu-server/110.conf
At the end I added
Code:
machine: q35
hostpci0: 07:00.0,pcie=1
Start VM
Proxmox not booting (The cursor flashes on the monitor).
-------------------------
I totally deleted all SSD and I install last debian. Then I installed the driver (without errors)
If I write in terminals
Code:
dmesg | grep frontend
I should see the available adapters, but I see nothing. The directory /dev/dvb/ does not exist.

If I write in terminals
Code:
dmesg | grep frontend
I see all the adapters and everything is OK
*****************
Would anyone know to advise me how to achieve DVB cards in VM or LXC?
thx
 
Find kernel version
Code:
uname -r
In my case
Code:
4.15.18-9-pve
Code:
apt-cache search pve-headers
apt install pve-headers-4.15.18-9-pve
Then install the driver
