Nebula uDigiTV DVB-T USB (terrestial digital TV decoder) (Zarlink MT352-T)

This is auto-detected by the SuSE kernel. Auto-initialisation from `cold' state to `warm' state cannot be complete, however, without the firmware in `/lib/firmware/dvb-usb-digitv-02.fw'. I suspect this firmware can somehow be extracted from one of the Windows driver file. Just do a Google search for `dvb-usb-digitv-02.fw', alternatively try rpm.pbone.net.

`kdetv' does not work. I can use `kaffeine' or `MythTV' to watch TV. Kaffeine works out of the box, so to speak, but does not seem to handle Australian subtitles (VBI PAL Teletext). MythTV handles the Teletext, but is much harder to set up. Even worse, it does not seem to auto-detect all the channels in Melbourne (ABC, SBS, 7, 9 and 10 plus sub-channels).
