Hi all,

described  here http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/TeVii_S470.

My configuration is :

- intel x86 platform
- Kernel 2.6.27-21
- tevii_ds3000.tar.gz (firmware archive from 
http://tevii.com/tevii_ds3000.tar.gz ),
- s2-liplianin  mercurial sources ( from 
http://mercurial.intuxication.org/hg/s2-liplianin)last changes at

All work fine i.e drivers/firmware installation after madprobe a right 
modules.

A problem appear when tunning card using szap-s2 :

# szap-s2 szap-s2 -c /root/channels.conf -x -M 5 -C 89 -l 9750 -S 1 MyCh

reading channels from file '/root/channels.conf'

ds3000_firmware_ondemand: No firmware uploaded (timeout or file not found?)

Apparently it can't locate a firmware file,  yet :

# ls -l  /lib/firmware/
-rwxr-xr-x    1 root     root         8192 May  3 07:09 dvb-fe-ds3000.fw


Any ideas why this happens?

Thanks and best regards,
