I wrote over the weekend describing the problems I've been having with my Freecom stick (id 14aa:022b). I've made some progress but am still struggling with the device.
Here's the dmesg output
  dvb-usb: found a 'WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (based on ZL353)' in cold state, will try to load a firmware
  dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-wt220u-zl0353-01.fw'
  dvb-usbcore: registered new driver dvb_usb_dtt200u
  usb 1-2: USB disconnect, address 3
  dvb-usb: generic DVB-USB module successfully deinitialized and disconnected.
  usb 1-2: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4

  dvb-usb: found a 'WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (based on ZL353)' in warm state.
  dvb-usb: will use the device's hardware PID filter (table count: 15).
  DVB: registering new adapter (WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (based on ZL353)).
  DVB: registering frontend 0 (WideView USB DVB-T)...
  input: IR-receiver inside an USB DVB receiver as /class/input/input1
  dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 300 msecs.
  dvb-usb: WideView WT-220U PenType Receiver (based on ZL353) successfully initialized and connected.
  dvb-usb: recv bulk message failed: -110

Basically when I attempt to tune it using a channels.conf from another system in my house I get a Tuning failure and (sometimes a kernel OOPS) with recv bulk message errors. However, if I follow the recommendations here (HYPERLINK "http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2006-April/009684.html"http://www.linuxtv.org/pipermail/linux-dvb/2006-April/009684.html ) and change ythe freq for BBC ONE from 641833330 to 642000000 I get a successful lock. dvbdate from the dvb-apps returns the correct date/time but scan results in a system freeze. Once tuned, all further attemps to retune the device (even to BBC ONE) result in a system freeze. Below is an extract from my (modified) channels.conf

lsmod shows

I'm on a Linksys NSLU2 (slug) running Slugos 3.10. All software is cross compiled on a Gentoo PC. 
All assistance is greatly appreciated.
