I checked last night and its working fine. I'm willing to bet that when
you tried you had ran it simply as "user" . Examples (which assume that
you are already operating from the correct directory ... or
alternatively just pass the correct directory path for the
get_dvb_firmare script along in the command line below):
$ perl get_dvb_firmware nxt2004
AVerTVHD_MCE_A180_Drv_v18.104.22.168.zip: Permission denied
wget failed - unable to download firmware at get_dvb_firmware line 372.
Whereas when attempted as the "root" user:
$ sudo perl get_dvb_firmware nxt2004

Firmware dvb-fe-nxt2004.fw extracted successfully.
Now copy it to either /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware or /lib/firmware
(depending on configuration of firmware hotplug).
