I have the Dvico FusionHDTV7 USB. Recently I have tried to upgrade to Kubuntu 13.04 from Kubuntu 12.04 but I cannot get my tv tuner card to work. For me it is kind of critical since I use my tv tuner card to watch Sesame Street / Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood with my daughter. I have read other forums where dvb-t got a major overhaul in linux kernel v3.3. I read on one forum that most software applications need to use Dvbv5. I am not sure if Kaffeine uses that. I am wondering if someone can help me solve this problem.

Kaffeine gives me errors:

kaffeine(8701) DvbEpgModel:vbEpgModel: cannot open "/home/user/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/epgdata.dvb"
kaffeine(8701) DvbManager::readDeviceConfigs: can't open "/home/user/.kde/share/apps/kaffeine/config.dvb"

Dmesg Reports the Following:

All it does is loop. I have tried putting in /etc/modprobe.d/xc5000.conf file with 'options xc5000 no_poweroff=1 #avoid reload ' and this does not seem to help. Any suggestions I am completely lost.

To Recreate use any linux distribution that uses Linux Kernel greater than 3.2 with a tv tuning device that uses firmware dvb-fe-xc5000-1.6.114.fw
