I think this is the module you are searching for https://github.com/xbianonpi/xbian-package-kernel/blob/master/content/lib/modules/3.8.13%2B/kernel/drivers/media/usb/dvb-usb-v2/dvb-usb-rtl28xxu.ko (3.8.13 kernel). Can you try installing that kernel?

kernel needs to be renamed to kernel.img for this to work. shouldn't it ?

RE: DVB-T kernel module for: RTL2838
Very similar to this problem but a different model. I have a USB DVB stick bought for SDR but I want to get it working as a tuner for my Xbian build.

I think the problem is that the stick I use has the Rafael Micro R820T tuner

Terminal

usb 1-1.2: new high-speed USB device number 4 using dwc_otg
usb 1-1.2: New USB device found, idVendor=0bda, idProduct=2838
usb 1-1.2: New USB device strings: Mfr=1, Product=2, SerialNumber=3
usb 1-1.2: Product: RTL2838UHIDIR
usb 1-1.2: Manufacturer: Realtek
usb 1-1.2: SerialNumber: 00000001

Terminal

usb 1-1.2: dvb_usb_v2: found a 'Realtek RTL2832U reference design' in warm state
usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_rtl28xxu
usb 1-1.2: dvb_usb_v2: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer
DVB: registering new adapter (Realtek RTL2832U reference design)
usb 1-1.2: dvb_usb_rtl28xxu: unknown tuner=NONE
usb 1-1.2: dvb_usb_v2: 'Realtek RTL2832U reference design' error while loading driver (-19)
usb 1-1.2: dvb_usb_v2: 'Realtek RTL2832U reference design' successfully deinitialized and disconnected

Any ideas?

RE: DVB-T kernel module for: RTL2838
Was there any update on firmware for a USB DVB-T with the RTL2838, with the R820T tuner?

Here are a couple of links that I have found in my quest

Im just wondering how to go about getting the hardware to work.
Im new to RPi and even newer to XBian.

Any help will be greatly appreciated.

RE: DVB-T kernel module for: RTL2838
post output of "dmesg" command as well (best via pastebin)

but it should work with 3.10.x kernels
