I've been trying for three days now to work out why I can't get this 
card to work. I think there's something wrong with the hotplugging: here 
are some lines from dmesg:

usb 1-6: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 20
ehci_hcd 0000:00:02.2: port 6 high speed
ehci_hcd 0000:00:02.2: GetStatus port 6 status 001005 POWER sig=se0 PE

class_hotplug - name = 1-6
CLASS: Unregistering class device. ID = '1-6'
class_hotplug - name = 1-6
device class '1-6': release.
dvb-usb: did not find the firmware file. (dvb-usb-nova-t-usb2-01.fw) 
Please see linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more details on firmware-problems.
dvb-usb: Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2 error while loading driver (-2)
dvb_usb_nova_t_usb2: probe of 1-6:1.0 failed with error -2

the firmware is in the correct place (I have done extinsive debugging to 
prove this!) The bit where the device gets unregistered before dvb-usb 
says it can't find the firmware looks suspicious.

I am using kernel 2.6.13-4. Any ideas would be greatly appreciated!
