    • DViCO FusionHDTV DVB-T Plus

FAQs

Q. The PCI Tuner works but can't get the USB Tuner working?
A. Check dmesg to ensure the firmware is loaded for the USB module. The message "dvb-usb: did not find the firmware file. (dvb-usb-bluebird-01.fw) Please see linux/Documentation/dvb/ for more details on firmware-problems. (-2)" requires the mentioned file to be loaded in /lib/firmware. It can be sourced at [1]
