Dear CityK:
   While you can download the firmware successfully, I am not that lucky.
And this is the result of my sudo perl get_dvb_firmware nxt2004:
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""

unzip failed - unable to extract firmware at get_dvb_firmware line 381.

I have a ATSC-110 at hand, without that firmware, I can not use it.
Would you please send me a copy of that firmware?
Thanks very much.
