How ever, you may have success with the following pages.  I did. <br>

If you are using a Dvico FusionHDTV DVB-T Pro with Ubuntu 9.04 and you can not get a video lock with MythTV (no video) you may see this message when running dmesg:
+
 
+
xc2028 0-0061: Error: firmware xc3028-v27.fw not found
+
 
+
If this is the case you are missing the firmware needed for this card.  Please refer to the following link:

{{Note|

* this page was missing because it was archived and replaced by the "[[How to Obtain, Build and Install V4L-DVB Device Drivers]]" article ... evidently 3rd party sites still refer to the older page.  Consequently, to keep everyone happy, '''this page will be transformed, in the near future, into a redirect to the new article'''.  (Though, hopefully 3rd party sites will eventually correct their links to the newer article --- while it may appear to be a trivial issue to just keep redirects, redirects are actually not particularly desirable for some benign reasons ... amusingly, this issue itself [user friendliness by not breaking links from 3rd parties vs. the technical reasons, in regards to wiki administration, that disfavour use of redirects] created a sort of bureaucratic holy war on Wikipedia/MediaWiki)
+
* Consequently, please do not add to this article, but instead, please add any appropriate information to the newer article: [[How to Obtain, Build and Install V4L-DVB Device Drivers]].  However, as a general note, the issue of missing firmware (as recently reference above) is a general issue that: 
+
** is already addressed in the new article
+
** is agnostic of any specific distro
+
** is applicable to a large number of devices, such that no device specific info should be placed in the new article (place such info in the device's own article, if not already covered there)}}
