Making it Work

The device is actively supported to run under Linux. Every few months the driver gets updated, and the company actively supports users through a forum. By downloading, compiling and installing the drivers and firmware, the device works.

Firmware

The driver software package contains the firmware file: dvb-usb-tbsqbox-id5922.fw. Just install it in /lib/firmware.

Drivers

For linux with x86 or X86-64 CPU

Available here from TBS website. Look for the TBS5922 driver. Latest update: 05/04/2016. Apart from the firmware file, there is no closed-source object code included in the software. All code has been released under GPLv2.

For compiling and installing the Open-source drivers or the Closed-source drivers, see TBS driver installation and Turbosight driver building.

For Linux with ARM CPU in Raspberry PI

WARNING : SHOULD WORKS ONLY WITH TBS 5922 AND NOT WITH TBS 5922SE

The open source driver is available here. For compiling and installing, follow the instructions at http://www.satelliteguys.us/xen/threads/hobbyist-open-source-satellite-receiver-raspberry-pi-2-instructions-and-tips.348466/#post-3641679 .

You mustn't use the remote control because it use a lot of of CPU power.
