Hi Matthias,

the "Freecom DVB-T USB Stick" works nicely with webcamd + vlc.
Jun 23 16:13:25  root: Unknown USB device: vendor 0x14aa product 0x0225 bus uhub7
Jun 23 16:13:25  kernel: ugen7.2: <vendor 0x14aa> at usbus7

There should also be some other Sticks with the same chip.

The only issue I have is that it is also recognized as a ukbd, so I had
to remove the ukbd entries in /etc/devd.conf.
