Hello,

I've just bought an Sandberg DigiTV USB DVB-T receiver.

I found out using lsusb that it contained an Afatech AF9016.

When using the default Ubuntu 2.6.22-14-generic kernel however, the
drivers wasn't loaded.

I downloaded the source tree for af9015 from
http://linuxtv.org/hg/~anttip/af9015/ and compiled it.

I use the firmware from http://af.zsolttech.com/Firmware/?C=S;O=A .

However, now when I plug it in at the drivers load these messages
appear in the kernel log:
