[linux-dvb] Nova-T USB2 frontend not loading...

I wonder if anyone is able to help me to get the frontend for my WinTV
Nova-T USB 2 DVB unit to load. I’ve tried on two freshly compiled kernels:
22.214.171.124 and 126.96.36.199, both with the relevant modules compiled (as far as
I’ve been able to ascertain) and both with the same effect (excerpt from
dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2' in warm state.
dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the
DVB: registering new adapter (Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2).
dvb-usb: MAC address: 00:0d:fe:35:35:35
--> dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2'
input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as /class/input/input2
dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 100 msecs.
dvb-usb: Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2 successfully initialized and
usbcore: registered new driver dvb_usb_nova_t_usb2
I believe all of the appropriate kernel modules are loaded (excerpt of

lsusb reports the device as "ID 2040:9301 Hauppauge Hauppauge WinTV NOVA-T
USB2 (warm)", but /dev/dvb/adaptor1 contains no frontend, just demux0, dvr0
and net0. Equally suspicious is the fact that the device cannot be
hot-plugged--it's only ever detected from a reboot.
I've even resorted to opening the thing up to check is it contains the DiB
chip not some new variant, and it does seem to have the DiB3000P on the
Any suggestions would be most welcome!
Thanks in advance...
