Thanks, for this patch.  I have tested it on 1 of 3 machines that I have
access to with this DVB card. No issues (Now loads 80 firmwares, instead
of 3)

It doesn't break Chris Pascoe's xc-test branch with the DViCO Fusion HDTV
DVB-T Dual Express.

It also makes my patch, to get support into the v4l-dvb head, (newer
version then posted here) work a lot more reliably (Perfectly on this
test machine, I will run it on my mythbox for a week or so before I post

I think you should email Chris Pascoe and petition him to include it in
his branch.  As this will definitely help alot of people out.

Thanks again,

  you are indeed missing firmwares. The xc-test branch from Chris
  Pascoe uses the special collection of firmwares
  xc3028-dvico-au-01.fw which only contains firmwares for 7MHz
  bandwidth (just try to tune a channel in the 7MHz band to confirm
  this). To make the card work also for other bandwidths please apply
  the following patch and put the standard firmware for xc3028
  (xc3028-v27.fw) in the usual place (e.g. /lib/firmware).

  This approach should also work for australia, because the standard
  firmware also contains those firmwares in xc3028-dvico-au-01.fw.

  Stephen, can you confirm this?
