dvb hybrid tv card "Aver Media Super Hybrid 007"

Question

Hello to All; I dug up an old dvb-card "hybrid":

ci7ht ~ # lspci |grep -i mult

Using Kaffeine does not work. 

In the past, I remember that I was using succesfully with Fedora that card but I had to download the firmware from the internet (and now i don't remember the site neither the filename of this firmware.
 
I would like to make it work here on Funtoo so "elegant", and even manage the radio if possible :P
 
I do not know whether to install linux-firmware or media-tv/linuxtv-dvb-firmware or more elegantly if it is "manageable adding some variable in /etc/portage/make.conf. 
 
About kernel configuration, the situation is as follows:
ci7ht ~ # zgrep FIRMWARE /proc/config.gz 
CONFIG_PREVENT_FIRMWARE_BUILD=y 
# CONFIG_FIRMWARE_IN_KERNEL is not set 
CONFIG_EXTRA_FIRMWARE="" 
CONFIG_HOSTAP_FIRMWARE=y 
CONFIG_HOSTAP_FIRMWARE_NVRAM=y 
CONFIG_RT2X00_LIB_FIRMWARE=y 
CONFIG_CYPRESS_FIRMWARE=m 
# CONFIG_DRM_LOAD_EDID_FIRMWARE is not set 
CONFIG_FIRMWARE_EDID=y 
CONFIG_FIRMWARE_MEMMAP=y 
# CONFIG_GOOGLE_FIRMWARE is not set 

 
But is better to compile firmwares "built-in" or "out" in /lib/firmware, or ir is the same ?
 
Thank You for any suggestion.

Forgive me if I still write in this thread I thought was resolved; 

Unfortunately (I use Funtoo "stable"), you are just repeated incidents at kernel level. 

So I exposed the kernel 3.15.1 and compiled. 

Now after more than 10 start-ups of the system, I have not encountered problems. 

So at this point I think they have improved their situation at kernel level. 

I hope this information can help those who found himself in the same situation ...... 

and Funtoo never dies .... : -P   :) :D

Ok, I think I found the solution by downloading the firmware for my tv card "hybrid" hanging out on the Internet; I found an old archive related to Ubuntu "Karmic Koala". 

The file in question is 



dvb-fe-tda10046.fw 


Then I put this file in /lib/firmwre/

Then now i see this ouptput message:



ci7ht ~ # dmesg|grep -i firm
[    7.819606] tda1004x: found firmware revision 0 -- invalid
[   10.138994] tda1004x: found firmware revision 0 -- invalid
[   10.138996] tda1004x: waiting for firmware upload...
[   16.389134] tda1004x: found firmware revision 20 -- ok
