Guenter, which checkout date does your dvb-kernel has?

In current dvb-kernel the yakumo device is driven by dvb-usb-* and not by 
dibusb anymore (even though the sources of dibusb are still there). If you 
just load

insmod dvb-usb.ko
insmod dvb-usb-dtt200u.ko

you don't need to rename firmware files.

Mark, you probably use the driver from the kernel, don't you? Please use 
dvb-kernel instead, as already suggested by Guenter and as described 

Guenter I'm interested in the crashes you describe. Can you post more 
information about it?
