Googling about this seems to be about the analog input that was never fully implemented in the kernel. This stuff is like ten years ago on kernel 2.6

I don't want to use the analog input anyway. I just don't want boot hanging trying to get it working then failing.
About ten years ago the forum advice was to load linuxtv-dvb-firmware, but that package doesn't exist anymore.
