I have JUST been poking around in the history file for dvb-usb-ids, because I 
have one of these sticks with the id mentioned below.  Now I need to find out 
what version of the source the debian module is!

A change to deal with this stick was added to the repository 6 weeks ago with 
this comment

[PATCH] Freecom DVB-T stick with ID 14aa:0225
 From: Alexander Tuschen <atuschen at web.de>
 Ok, here is the working patch for the Freecom DVB-T stick with USB-ID
 It uses the Firmware-file, wich Erich Focht created and wich can be obtainded
 from http://home.arcor.de/efocht/dvb-usb-wt220u-fc03.fw
 Also the original patch is from Erich. It adds the proper USB-IDs and I only
 had to change the endpoint of the MPEG-2 data-transfer to 0x86.
