3) Download firmware
====================
https://github.com/osmc/dvb-firmware-osmc
Download files dvb-demod-si2168-d60-01.fw and dvb-tuner-si2141-a10-01.fw, put them under /lib/firmware
4) Have fun with DVB-T2 stick
=============================
For scanning you can use w_scan.

Sorry, may be I am lama. Can you give me some deep hint: I use debian buster, 4.19.0-2-amd64. I hope, I installed all necessary: sources linux-source-4.19.tar.xz, unziped, headers linux-headers-4.19.0-2-common, build esential ...
I would like to be able to recompile some modules to add in the support for Sigma T2, Tehuti TN40xx and similar. People talk about in fora but the hints are for more competent hackers. Can you give me a link where can I upgrade my knowledge.
A comment: what or who can include the support for various HW into the base kernel while it is so easy?
