It was the driver itself, in the log file:

Nov 30 14:58:33 vdr2 firmware.sh[27483]: Cannot find  firmware file 'dvb-fe-tda10046.fw'
Nov 30 14:58:33 vdr2 kernel: tda1004x: please rename the firmware file to dvb-fe-tda10046.fw

Apparently the dvb-fe-tda10045.fw is the same I have, but you have a different
dvb-fe-tda10046.fw.

Looks like TT has moved the archive to a new location:

http://www.technotrend.de/Dokumente/87/software/219/TT_PCI_2.19h_28_11_2006.zip

With this one I get a working dvb-fe-tda10046.fw.
Thanks for your input.

Maybe the get_dvb_firmware script should be adapted accordingly.
