Hello Patrick,

dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in cold state, will try to 
load a firmware

dib0700: firmware started successfully.
dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in warm state.
dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software 
DVB: registering new adapter (Hauppauge Nova-T Stick).
DiB7000M:i2c read error on 896
DiB7000M:-E-  DiB7000M: wrong Vendor ID (read=0x4602)
dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick'
