Hauppauge WInTV Nova-T-Lite (DVB-T USB-Stick) won't work


I’m trying to get the DVB device called Hauppauge WInTV Nova-T-Lite to work with openSuse 10.3.
I copied the firmware from here (dvb-usb-dib0700-1.10.fw) to /lib/firmware/ (is that correct?).

lsusb says:

Bus 003 Device 003: ID 2040:7070 Hauppauge

But dmesg | grep dvb says nothing.

Does anyone know if my Kernel (2.6.22) already has the appropriate drivers for the DVB-Stick WinTV Nova-T-Lite? Or do I need to compile as it is described at the LinuxTV-Howto (Case 2)? Or is there a rpm-Package for openSuse?

Thanks and greetings from Germany,

I took a look on the openSUSE hardware compatibility page, but unfortunately if any openSUSE users have this working, they have not bothered to update the hardware compatibility list. HCL/TV Cards - openSUSE

But on that site, for a similar card, one needed to install the v4l applications. I’m not 100% certain what those are, … possibly v4l-tools and pwlib-plugins-v4l2

Alternatively, you could look at this mythtv wiki, which gives some hints:
Hauppauge WinTV Nova-T USB2 - MythTV

Welcome to our forum, and good luck in sorting this.

The DVB subsystem does not start automatically so have you issued:
rcdvb start
chkconfig dvb on

Well, now that I’ve entered this, the dmesg output contains

Linux video capture interface: v2.00
saa7146: register extension ‘dvb’.

But I still wonder if the appropriate Kernel modules are loaded and /dev/dvb is still empty…

Not sure I understand … to see what kernel modules are loaded at any time, you just need to type: lsmod
