Thanks for your help Patrick - I really apprecaite it.

I did what you suggested; the directory identified is /lib/firmware so I put the file (dvb-usb-avertv-a800-02.fw) into that directory - is there anything else I need to do?

When I plug the box into a USB interface I see a message pop up in /var/log/message (Jul 18 09:35:30 localhost kernel: usb 1-8: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 5) but if I look for the device in /dev/ I still only have video0 - which is another video capture card.

Is there any other log I should be looking at or do I need to load a module etc?

Thanks very much,

Have a look into your /etc/hotplug/firmware.agent for FIRMWARE_DIRS. In 
one of the mentioned pathes you have to put the firmware.

When plugging in the box, it should be loaded automatically then.
