I've got a Cinergy Hybrid XE DVB-T USB Stick, which has got a tm6010
chip inside (I opened the case just to get sure). Quite fast I realized,
that there are no stable Linux drivers out there, so i tried the
unstable one.

So I checked out the repo at http://linuxtv.org/hg/~mchehab/tm6010/ and
compiled (without DVB), installed, loaded the module and then inserted
the stick and well.. nothing happened, because the driver did not knew
about my device. To fix this, i added the line
{ USB_DEVICE(0x0ccd, 0x0086), .driver_info = TM6010_BOARD_GENERIC },
to file tm6000-cards.c (my lsusb output is 'Bus 008 Device 004: ID
0ccd:0086 TerraTec Electronic GmbH'). I do not know, whether
TM6010_BOARD_GENERIC is the correct one, but for me it seemed to be the
best solution.
Afterward, the driver recognized my stick and began to work:
http://pastebin.com/f79722ed2 . In short: The firmware's missing. So I
extracted the firmware with help of a python script I found on the
internet and put it to the right place. Here's the (long) result:

I'm not surprised that my journey has failed, because I do not really
know what my added line does (good old try'n'error), so my question:
Where to go from here?
