OK, so now things look like this in the directory:
mjr at phantom:/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware$ ls -l
yhteensä 340
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  30555 2005-03-25 22:13 dvb-fe-tda10045.fw
-rw-r--r--  1 root root  24479 2005-03-25 22:13 dvb-fe-tda10046.fw
-rw-r--r--  1 root root 286720 2004-12-17 17:42 tda1004x.bin

And still, dmesg with the 2.6.10 kernel (after turning off the DVB
device and rebooting the computer):
tda1004x: waiting for firmware upload...
tda1004x: no firmware upload (timeout or file not found?)
tda1004x: firmware upload failed

The md5sum of my firmware file follows; if yours differs, could you send
it please:

2105fd5bf37842fbcdfa4bfd58f3594a  dvb-fe-tda10045.fw

Of course, and it is installed:
ii  hotplug        0.0.20040329-16ubuntu17 Linux Hotplug Scripts

If your firmware file's md5sum matches mine, I suppose the next step is
to report a hotplug bug in Ubuntu, yes?
