Hello again,

I am sorry for top posting in the past. I forgot that I shouldn't.

I thought maybe that the firmware was wrong. Since the device works in
Vista, maybe I should try stealing its firmware. However, I do not
know how to do this.

I am also wondering if I can just boot into Vista and let it load the
firmware. If I then reboot, I wonder if the firmware will still be in
the stick, so Linux can use it?

BTW, here's the output from dvbscan:
