Hello,

I've been using this device under Linux since April with no problems at all. Now it stopped working „overnight“. Please help me find out whether this is my mistake, a hardware failure or a bug in the driver.

Kernel: 2.6.27.1 (vanilla)
af9015: af9015-ccb3736e43ba (the current one)

The dmesg output is interesting. This one is from yesterday when it worked:

	Oct 20 22:32:07 xandrej usb 4-2.4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 12

	Oct 20 22:32:08 xandrej input: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [Afatech DVB-T 2] on usb-0000:00:1d.7-2.4

And this is what it looks like now:

	Oct 21 20:46:09 xandrej usb 4-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 9
	Oct 21 20:46:09 xandrej usb 4-2: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

	Oct 21 20:46:09 xandrej firmware: requesting dvb-usb-af9015.fw
	Oct 21 20:46:09 xandrej dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-af9015.fw'
	Oct 21 20:46:10 xandrej Afatech DVB-T 2: Fixing fullspeed to highspeed interval: 16 -> 8
	Oct 21 20:46:10 xandrej input: Afatech DVB-T 2 as /class/input/input13
	Oct 21 20:46:10 xandrej input: USB HID v1.01 Keyboard [Afatech DVB-T 2] on usb-0000:00:1d.7-2

As you can see, the module tda18271 does not load at all. Presumably, loading it manually does not help. (No output is produced.)

This seems *inexplicable* to me. I am the only user of this computer. There were no kernel updates between the two sessions. Everything remained unchanged, as far as software is concerned. However, my device is simly dead now and Kaffeine does not find it any more. Any piece of advice would be welcome.
