Hi a week or two ago I noticed that my usual weekly dist upgrade in 
debian downloaded some new firmware for my WinTV Nova-T digital TV card.

However I left the country shortly afterwards and never paid it much 
more attention until I returned yesterday. The thing is that whatever 
happend during the dist upgrade, the new firmware that was downloaded 
doesn't seem to work any more. If I run dmesg I get an error about the 
firmware not being uploaded as follows:

tda1004x: waiting for firmware upload...
tda1004x: Error during firmware upload
tda1004x: firmware upload failed
tda1004x: waiting for firmware upload...
tda1004x: Error during firmware upload
tda1004x: firmware upload failed
tda1004x: waiting for firmware upload...
tda1004x: Error during firmware upload
tda1004x: firmware upload failed

What's going on? This seems to be saying that the new firmware the dist 
upgrade downloaded is incompatable. But I've had my DVB card working 
perfectly for months. So what has broken?

I am running Debian Sid on a 2.6.11.7x kernel with all of the latest and 
greatest updates applied.
