Peter,

I get something similar when starting up from 'cold'.  I then unplug the usb 
connector from the Hauppage box and reconnect after a few seconds, and 
consequently get a syslog that looks like this:

Jun 20 00:58:52 house kernel: usb 2-1: new high speed USB device using

successfully initialized and connected.

Although it reported not finding the firmware, this was not the problem.  As 
the device comes back 'warm', it would appear that downloading the firmware 
does actually happen, but that the hotplug process stops at that point???  
I'm no expert on this, but you may find that a quick disconnect gets you 
working.

(My details: SuSE 9.3 on Athlon 64/PCIe but with 2.6.16.18 kernel and 
Mercurial drivers downloaded 5 Jun 06)
