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-22.214.171.124.fw but I guess that's not it.
