Hello,
I am sorry in case you think I haven't been polite. My  Name is Richard 
and this post here (you could have recieved it some days before) is my 
first one. So I will ask you to help me, if you can. Please read this 
mail (again), because I added an important point.
Thursday last week I bought a DVD-Stick, named 'Hanftek UMT-010 DVB-T 
USB2.0'. I installed it under Windows XP and I could recieve channels.
Now I wanted to make it run with my linux OS, Kubuntu Edgy Eft / Kernel
2.6.17-10-generic.
I cloned the last v4l-Directories from linuxtv.org and integrated the
modules into my sytem with 'make' and make 'install'
After that I rebooted my Laptop and stuck in my DVB-T-stick and with
'dmesg' I recieved:

Ok, I should copy the 'dvb-usb-umt-010-02.fw' firmware file into
/lib/firmware. I loaded it from linuxtv.org again and copied it.
After reboot, I stuck in again my stick and dmesg displayed now:

Everything seems to be loaded properly. But my LED is not burning! Some
dvb-t description websites expected it should burn. And though I have a 
proper channel-table file (de-KoelnBonn) I cannot scan for stations.
The scan runs within 10 seconds (too fast!) without finding any station.
It's telling 'tuning failed' 6 times.
With another pc and a build-in pci-card (ttpci) the scan runs well.
In Kaffeine I find the device 'Zarlink MT352' but scanning is
unsuccessful here, too. What I can see, that there is no signal beeing 
recieved while scanning.
I followed the advice to rename the usb-dibusb-6.0.0.8.fw file into
usb-umt-010-02.fw, copied it into /lib/firmware to load this firmware
file instead of the original one. The result is worse then before.

Do you have any idea? Can I use an original Windows firmware dll or sys
file from the OEM-cd and rename it into usb-umt-010-02.fw, or what can I
do else.
To point the problem: My LED doesn't begin to burn after sticking in.
With Windows the LED is burning, and with linux it should burn when
using the right dirmware file.

Maybe important for you:
Output of lsusb:
Bus 005 Device 003: ID 15f4:0015 HanfTek

Thank you in advance.
