Is this with a self-compiled kernel? I had something similar when I first got 
one of these devices. My problem was that I had USB support built into the 
kernel rather than as modules, and this meant that hotplug tried to load the 
firmware before the DVB drivers had been loaded. Once I changed the USB stuff 
to modules, the firmware loads fine on booting from a cold state.

Even so, it does seem to connect the device, load the firmware if needed, 
disconnect it, and then reconnect it again! Not sure if it's meant to do 
this, though!
