Kaffeine doesn't see Hauppage Nova-T Win-TV in Koala
Just upgraded all the way from Ubuntu 8.4 to 9.10, and Kaffeine no longer sees my Hauppage Nova-T Win-TV USB stick. It used to work fine, and the stick itself does seem to be detected:
$ dmesg | grep dvb
[ 14.178550] dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T Stick' in warm state.
[ 14.178689] dvb-usb: will pass the complete MPEG2 transport stream to the software demuxer.
[ 15.854749] dvb-usb: schedule remote query interval to 50 msecs.
[ 15.854754] dvb-usb: Hauppauge Nova-T Stick successfully initialized and connected.
[ 15.862296] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_dib0700
My /lib/firmware contains
Kaffeine gives me the "Digital Television" icon, but no channels are shown, nor any Source for the channel scan.
I would be happy either with a fix for this, or with a suggestion for an alternative to Kaffeine that is easy to get to work (mythtv is much too complex for me as I have limited time, and vdr just seems to hang when I start it).

Think I've nearly solved it myself...
It seems my Kaffeine settings weren't preserved through the upgrade. I eventually discovered Television / Configure Television / Device 1, and set Source to Autoscan. Then the scan worked, but I was unable to watch any channels. This bug+fix sorted that...
Now I get the channels, but with weird washed-out colours, which I remember dimly from a few years back, so can probably sort out.
