As it shows an issue with firmware dvb-fe-ds3103.fw i downloaded it from here : http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVBSKY_S950 to /lib/firmware but it didn’t seem to make any difference,
A few other things also - when i install the linuxtv.org git tree my adapter disappears from the tvheadend server page and no longer loads in osmc, until i delete the linuxtv media_build directory that it makes and reboot.
Tvheadend is giving me pains too, I have compiled it from source but i dont get the ‘pre-defined muxes’ drop down tab when i create a network. It could be due to the firmware problem or just something gone wrong, I dont see a bouquet tab either which i got once before trying this., I have reinstalled by deleting the associated folders and re-compiling but the issue remains, sudo apt-get purge tvheadend says tvheadend is not installed so i dont know any way to fully remove all traces before re-installing.
Also not seeing the ‘tv’ section on the menu in osmc using confluence skin whereas i do when i enable simple iptv client.
Bout ready to give up on this, but im truly thankful for the help so far. Seems like im asking to much and just bought the wrong thing or im just jinxed. :blush
EDIT : i just fixed the driver issue i d/l it from here https://bitbucket.org/liplianin/s2-liplianin-v37/downloads - it actually wasnt included in the first link as i thought, So there are no more driver errors.

I guess ill just have to start from a fully fresh install and not a cloned copy to fix the tvheadend issues.
