You do not need journalctl, because your system is no systemd-system obviously.
On my system there is no syslog or other logfile in directory /var/log :)

Maybe it is a good idea to reinstall your Debian system to be sure, that all
modules are clean.
Than create a backup of the entire modules tree (/lib/modules/*) and install
TBS stuff without deleting any directories.
After that you are able to compare the mixed modules to the backup (diff -Nqr
/lib/modules /your.backup) and find out, what you should delete before
No mixed as I can see. Anyway I did many first install with clonezilla (I have
an image of Debian fresh install without lirc, tbs, etc...).
Same problem everytime => TBS problem.

Debian and OpenSUSE are different. Logging is different, configuration is
different, ... but both are linux :) Do you have an old system with running DVB
and LIRC? If so, try to find the LIRC configuration...
Unfortunately not !
I do not know Debian and which version is stable or not.
But why not - "latest is greatest" :)
I tried today with Jessie 8.4.0 x64, exactly same problem :-(
I think we tried all the ways. I opened a case at TBS support a few days ago.
They asked me to send them "lirc_serial.ko working" to check, it seems they
could integrate it in their driver. If so, it should be great !
Many thanks for your help !
Of course, if I have somme good (news) from TBS, I will post here.
