Can't get this DVB to be seen. [Solved]

Post by Douglas_E_Knapp » Mon Jan 18, 2016 15:35

I don't know where to go from here. It would seem that the device is not in /dev/dvb because that dir does not even exist. Dsmeg says that the driver is there but then the programs can't seem to find it or thinks it is being used by some other program but it says that after a fresh boot. Any ideas what to do next?
BTW it was working. I rebooted and now I just get this.

Thanks
