Hi all!

Im currently trying to set up my new Hauppauge Nova-T 500. I have
followed the instructions in this manual exactly: 


Unfortunately, loading the firmeware fails. Here is my dmesg-output:

[350864.383841] dib0700: loaded with support for 5 different
[350864.478475] dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T 500 Dual DVB-T' in
cold state, will try to load a firmware
[350864.589510] dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file
[350864.589522] dib0700: firmware download failed at 7 with -22
[350864.590096] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_dib0700

The firmware exists in both paths: /lib/firmware
and /lib/firmware/2.6.20-15-generic/.

Nevertheless, Im allways getting this firmware error, whether the file
exists or not.

Some informations about my system which might be usefull:
