Managed to get a bit further myself - I realized that I need to
provide some firmware. I tried to use the firmware that is listed in
the get_dvb_firware script, for the tda10046 there are two versions
(one for lifeview, one other), both of which give the same dmesg
output (included below), however, neither of which actually let me
find any channels when I scan.

Is there something else obvious that I'm missing?
