I'm not sure what you're asking, but the package maintainer doesn't have
a setup that would need any firmware nor has access to one and nobody
has reported any related issues before this.  Could you provide an
example of what kind of package specific documentation would you have
found useful?

I don't see anything in VDR's documentation or sources that would refer
to any firmware paths, so the thing saying the above is probably the DVB
driver you're using.  I just sent a patch to the DVB mailing list that
might improve the related messages and docs a bit.

Will send you mine in PM.
