yes. a little bit:
says, that your devices under /dev/dvb are created.
as user: you need permissions there. i do a
chown -R root.<your-user name> /dev/dvb

but first of all: what did dmesg say, after plugging the stick.
any entries related to firmware ???
try again: udevmonitor in one console, tail -f /var/log/* in another

for my it's

if there is nothing that the fw is loaded, then i would guess: wrong 
firmware.
check your device-pci-ids: lsusb

...
Bus 001 Device 008: ID 14aa:0221 AVerMedia (again) or C&E
...
