Hi,

I've been running 2.6.16 for a while now with an Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA- 
T usb2 without any problem, but today it's stopped working suddenly  
and I'm not able to debug why. Everything looks normal but the  
frontend register.

This is what I get:

# dmesg | grep -i dvb
DVB: registering new adapter (FlexCop Digital TV device).
DVB: registering frontend 0 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...
b2c2-flexcop: initialization of 'Sky2PC/SkyStar 2 DVB-S' at the 'PCI'  
bus controlled by a 'FlexCopIIb' complete
DVB: registering new adapter (FlexCop Digital TV device).
DVB: registering frontend 1 (ST STV0299 DVB-S)...

dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2'

dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 100 msecs.
dvb-usb: Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2 successfully initialized and  
connected.

The only different message I'm getting as per before is this one:
dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2'

As per my old logs it used to say:
DVB: registering frontend 0 (DiBcom 3000P/M-C DVB-T)...


Can someone point me to where to look at or any tip that can help me  
with this issue. As I said it's been working for months now, and  
today it stopped. Could it be a hardware problem/broken? Any idea on  
how to test this?.

Thanks a lot,

Luis
