t230c - cant watch dvb-c channels on linux

t230c - cant watch dvb-c channels on linux

 I have T230C and it works well on windows 7, I can watch both dvb-t and dvb-c channels. With an android tablet using the padtv hd app I can watch dvb-t channels.

On linux ( latest Ubuntu with kernel 5.x ) I can only watch dvb-t channels.

The stick can tune the dvb-c channels but when selected a channel to watch with Kaffeine there is no video or audio. There are some audio noises and sometimes some pictures with color rectangles but it seems not working. What can be the problem?
