I am new at this, so forgive the naive question, but where does the firmware 
come from. 

I downloaded the firmware for my freecom usb dvb-t tuner from a web site 
(not linuxtv.org) as a binary file which I found in a post I picked up from 
the mail archives (because the id of the unit is 14aa:0225 rather than the 
more standard ids), and since then someone has said there is a bug in it, 
which means we have to tune to integral no of MHz. 

I have tried installing the tuner under windows - but it is not at all 
obvious to me which file under windows is the firmware either.
