[linux-dvb] Problem with 'Hauppauge WinTV-NOVA-T usb2 - no frontend

Hi

Well, I've just moved house so that I can live in an area with DVB reception
:-)

I've replaced the hard drive in my Linux box so that I can have a lovely
clean installation of MythTV and I've dashed out to the shops and bought a
WinTV-Nova-T-USB2.

Unfortunately I'm having trouble getting the thing to work, so I was hoping
that some kind soul could help me out.

I'm almost there, but have a problem with no frontend being attached.
I'm using the standard Linux 2.6.15 kernel from the Debian "testing"
release.  I'm using the DVB modules that come with this as standard.

I'm using the dvb-usb-nova-t-usb2-01.fw firmware, and the little red light
comes on!

I've searched the linux-dvb archives but can't find anything similar to
this.  The only thing on the Wiki relating to this device is that it should
work.

Does anyone have any ideas?
I've listed loads of information below if it helps!

Thanks!
Steve
