There was a rewrite and renaming (along with the firmware name) of the 
dibusb-driver and it is not included in any mainstream kernel, yet. In 
dvb-kernel CVS all traces of the old driver have been removed, so the 

Unfortunately the old driver only says that "it doesn't find a firmware" 
but not which one. The firmware data from dvb-usb-dibusb- is 
correct, but not the filename.

It has to be "dvb-dibusb-". So renaming is good enough.

good luck,
