I own a Hauppauge WinTV Nova-T Stick which I cannot manage to work.

lsusb gives me the following:
Bus 002 Device 002: ID 045e:007d Microsoft Corp. Notebook Optical Mouse
Bus 002 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0483:2016 SGS Thomson Microelectronics Fingerprint 
Bus 003 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 001 Device 001: ID 0000:0000
Bus 004 Device 005: ID 2040:7060 Hauppauge
Bus 004 Device 001: ID 0000:0000

I use kernel so I changed the device id hardcoded in dvb-usb-ids.h to 

When I now plug in the stick dmesg states the following:

usb 4-4: new high speed USB device using ehci_hcd and address 4
usb 4-4: configuration #1 chosen from 1 choice

dvb-usb: no frontend was attached by 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick'
dvb-usb: Hauppauge Nova-T Stick successfully initialized and connected.

Why is there no frontend chosen?

Thanks for any help in advance, Simon
