I'm trying to get a Hauppauge WinTV HVR 950Q working with composite video using its supplied micro-USB adapter cable.  I built a new kernel with shared memory settings per the instructions in the zoneminder port.  My problems are twofold:1. webcamd will segfault if I put the file dvb-fe-xc5000-1.6.114.fw in /boot/modules2. w_scan hangs
I suspect my problems are related to the firmware version.  How can I tell what firmware exists on the device, and how can I get webcamd to install the newer firmware?
