I have a DVBSky T9580 PCI tuner card.

My problem is that after rebooting,, the device dissapears, lspci does not list it any more.

I tried rebooting with reboot command as well as shutdown -r 0. Only powering the PC off and on resolves the situation.

My questions are:

  1. How can I isolate whether it is a hardware problem or Linux problem.
  2. Is it possible to tell Linux to rescan the PCI bus for devices?

    This doesn't answer your questions, but have you tried reseating the card? Sep 15, 2015 at 21:22

    If, from Linux's point of view, the card is sometimes detected during startup and sometimes not, depending on whether it was a cold boot or a warm boot, then it's a hardware problem: at the software level, startup after a cold boot and startup after a warm boot are the same thing.

I have a similar problem with my PCIe SSD, adding reboot=pci kernel parameter seems to solve the problem.
