Not sure. My test with that firmware was inconclusive, and then I found 
Ilia's post, which implied that it wouldn't work anyway. I need to test it 
again now that everything else works.

There are a some links to that file in google. But renaming firmware files 
seems to be common.

Can you send me a firmware file to test, or the md5sum of the accepted 
firmware? The linux/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware yields a file 
called dvb-dibusb-5.0.0.11.fw but I guess that's not it.

Thanks,
Finn
