[linux-dvb] Problems with firmware and modules for Freecom DVB USB-stick

Hi!

I have a new Freecom DVB USB-stick, that i cannot get to work in Linux
(running ubuntu feisty). It works well in Windows, so the stick seem ok.

I have read the http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/DVB_USB and loaded
the modules and downloaded firmware accordingly. In my
/lib/firmware/2.6.20-15-generic I have:
dvb-fe-or51132-qam.fw
dvb-fe-or51132-vsb.fw
dvb-fe-or51211.fw
dvb-ttpci-01.fw
dvb-usb-avertv-a800-02.fw
dvb-usb-dibusb-5.0.0.11.fw
dvb-usb-dibusb-6.0.0.8.fw
dvb-usb-dtt200u-01.fw
dvb-usb-umt-010-02.fw
dvb-usb-vp702x-01.fw
dvb-usb-vp7045-01.fw
dvb-usb-wt220u-01.fw
dvb-usb-wt220u-fc03.fw
dvb-usb-wt220u-zl0353-01.fw

When I have loaded the modules dvb_usb and dvb-usb-dtt200u (according to
the howto at linuxtv), I have the following modules :

$ lsmod | grep dvb
dvb_usb_dtt200u        13444  0
dvb_usb                24972  1 dvb_usb_dtt200u
dvb_core               81832  1 dvb_usb
dvb_pll                15492  1 dvb_usb
i2c_core               22784  3 dvb_usb,dvb_pll,i2c_ec
usbcore               134280  6
dvb_usb_dtt200u,dvb_usb,hci_usb,ehci_hcd,uhci_hcd

Plugging in the device gives in dmesg:

[ 6013.972000] usb 4-3: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and
address 6
[ 6014.496000] usb 4-3: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

And no /dev/dvb-folder.

I guess the firmware or modules are wrong - or is there any other
problem? Anybody have any assistance, or know if there is new versions
of modules to try? I also tried compiling the latest (as of April 29th)
code from http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb. No change.

All help or advice warmly welcome.
