Ubuntu: Hauppauge WinTV-soloHD usb stick does not work on 16.04.1


This question has been extensively discussed under the 'Hauppauge winTv SoloHD unclaimed' 1 question on askubuntu.

My set up is similar.

andrew@xps15:~$ lsb_release -a

At this point the answer to the question on askubuntu begins to become very complicated in my opinion. I have the required drivers in /lib/firmware but I have not followed the 'build and make v4l-dvb' thread; its just a bit too much for me - sorry. So my question is: Is there another way to solve my problem? Thanks Andrew


You can build a separate driver for your hardware like shown here: How (recipe) to build only one kernel module?. No need to build all modules for dvb.
