dmesg is very helpfull. I looked to see what happened on boot (dmesg is only 
usefull close to the event ).

The following logs nailed it

Feb 14 18:26:25 mythmaster kernel: dvb-usb: found a 'DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T 
Dual USB' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
Feb 14 18:26:25 mythmaster kernel: dvb-usb: did not find the firmware file. 
(dvb-usb-bluebird-01.fw) Please see linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more 
details on firmware-problems. (-2)
Feb 14 18:26:25 mythmaster kernel: dvb_usb_cxusb: probe of 1-1:1.0 failed 
with error -22

in the documentation directory there was a perl script  get_dvb_firmware 
that downloaded the firmware. Very neat from the developers. I will write a 
little how to in the next couple of days as this seems to be a common
