I recently got a few of the Hauppauge nova-t stick devices. I tried using
the latest source from http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb and the /~pb/v4l-dvb
trees but I always get "no frontend was attached". I'm running Ubuntu 6.10
powerpc on a mac mini.

dmesg output:
[  611.770214] usb 2-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address

I assume the numbers on the device itself have some sort of meaning so the
first line is:
M/R:70001/A1B5  #3006
The second line changes between devices but its along the lines of
000DFE0A84D2       LF

Can I provide any additional information or help in order to help work out
why this doesn't work?

Many thanks,
