Getting the Firmware
-Currently, the driver only works with v2.15a of the firmware. The firmwares
-can be obtained in this way:
+The firmware can be found in the software update zip files on this page:

-unzip -j dec215a.exe Software/Oem/STB/App/Boot/STB_PC_T.bin
-unzip -j dec215a.exe Software/Oem/STB/App/Boot/STB_PC_S.bin
+The firmwares are named as follows:
+DEC2000-t: STB_PC_T.bin
+DEC2540-t: STB_PC_X.bin
+DEC3000-s: STB_PC_S.bin
+Note that firmwares since version 2.16 beta2 for the DEC2000-t give the device
+the USB ID of the DEC3000-s. The driver copes with this.
+Instructions follow for retrieving version 2.16 of the firmware:
+unzip -j dec216.exe software/OEM/STB/App/Boot/STB_PC_T.bin
+unzip -j dec216.exe software/OEM/STB/App/Boot/STB_PC_X.bin
+unzip -j dec216.exe software/OEM/STB/App/Boot/STB_PC_S.bin

Compilation Notes for 2.4 kernels
For 2.4 kernels the firmware for the DECs is compiled into the driver itself.
-The firmwares are expected to be in /etc/dvb at compilation time.
+The firmwares are expected to be in the build-2.4 directory at compilation
