another way to get the dazzle stick to work on heron

sudo su

apt-get install mercurial linux-headers-$(uname -r) linux-source build-essential

cd /lib/firmware

wget http://konstantin.filtschew.de/v4l-firmware/firmware_v4.tgz

tar xvzf firmware_v4.tgz

hg clone http://mcentral.de/hg/~mrec/v4l-dvb-experimental

cd v4l-dvb-experimental

make

make install

reboot

sudo modprobe em2880-dvb

If on the next reboot, the card stops working the em2880-dvb module is not being loaded properly in Feisty. To fix this :

cd /etc/modprobe.d
sudo gedit dvbstick

then add this line to the new dvbstick file :
install em28xx /sbin/modprobe --ignore-install em28xx; /bin/sleep 2; /sbin/modprobe em2880-dvb

Reboot your system
