USB DVB-T tuner MSI Mega Sky 580 not working

Bug #163336 reported by Mr.Dan on 2007-11-17

Bug Description

I have a MSI Mega Sky 580 DVB-T USB tuner, which worked for me perfectly in Ubuntu 6.06 and 6.10
I use always the same method to get it to work:

hg clone
make, sudo make install
install dvb-utils
firmware wget to /lib/firmware/$(uname -r)

and then I was usually able to open my channels.conf with VLC and watch the TV

now in 7.10 i'm experiencing problems...

 dmesg | grep dvb
[ 16.024000] dvb-usb: found a 'MSI Mega Sky 55801 DVB-T USB2.0' in warm state.
[ 16.024000] dvb-usb: This USB2.0 device cannot be run on a USB1.1 port. (it lacks a hardware PID filter)
[ 16.024000] dvb-usb: MSI Mega Sky 55801 DVB-T USB2.0 error while loading driver (-19)
[ 16.024000] usbcore: registered new interface driver dvb_usb_gl861

(i see the problem in the USB1.1 vs USB2.0 mismatch, i have no USB1.1 in my laptop (Acer Aspire 5104 WLMi))

scan cz-praha
scanning cz-praha
using '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0' and '/dev/dvb/adapter0/demux0'
main:2247: FATAL: failed to open '/dev/dvb/adapter0/frontend0': 2 No such file or directory

I tried to modprobe ehci_hcd but it didn't help
I thought this DVB tuner should work out of the box in Gutsy


I this still a problem under Hardy and a current version of dvb-utils?
