Ok then I buy an ARTEC T14BR (if I find it in the shop :))
Is dvb-usb-dib0700-03-pre1.fw latest firmware ? Where can it be found ?
I guess dmesg | grep dvb should tell the correct name and it should be
changed to it. It should be copied to /lib/firmware/ ?
Do you know if the code is mature for this product, I mean no bugs and all
features completed ? :p
