Hi,

I'm having an issue getting the Dvico Nano2 DVB-T USB stick to work under 
Mythbuntu 7.10 and hoping someone can give me some pointers.

In the dmesg output, I keep getting this:

[  576.541492] dvb-usb: found a 'DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T NANO2 w/o firmware' in 
warm state.
[  576.725695] dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport streamto the 
software demuxer.

firmware)

[  577.072740] dvb-usb: DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T NANO2 w/o firmware successfully 
initialized and connected.

I'm a bit concerned about the "w/o firmware" bit above.

I have the following firmware files in /lib/firmware...
xc3028-dvico-au-01.fw
xc3028-v27.fw
dvb-usb-bluebird-01.fw
dvb-usb-bluebird-02.fw
...which I've downloaded based on various posts I've found.

When trying to run a scan I constantly get "tuning failed!!!"...

WARNING: >>> tuning failed!!!

Any ideas? I'm using kernel version 2.6.27-7-generic. 

One thing to note is that I am running this on a Guest OS under VMware Server 
2 (with the USB passed through) - so that might be the reason its coming up in 
a warm state.

Any help would be much appreciated.

Thanks,

Luke
