hi again,

now I use linux 2.6.20-rc7-git3 and (nearly) nothing has changed.
When I plug in the stick, dmesg tells me the following:

dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in cold state, will try to load a 
dvb-usb: downloading firmware from file 'dvb-usb-dib0700-01.fw'
dib0700: firmware started successfully.
dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in warm state.
**WARNING** I2C adapter driver [Hauppauge Nova-T Stick] forgot to specify 
physical device; fix it!
dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software 
DVB: registering new adapter (Hauppauge Nova-T Stick).
dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick'
dvb-usb: Hauppauge Nova-T Stick successfully initialized and connected.

As you can see there is a warning about I2C and again no frintend has been 
registered by the stick's driver.

The USB ID of the stick is 7060, which is now recognized by the kernel.

Did anynone solve this?

Best Regards, Simon
