Any chance that /lib/firmware/v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw is a symlink to a file
that doesn't exist? The command

ls -l /lib/firmware/v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw

should tell you this. I can't think of any other reason why you would
get the "no such file or directory" error.

I had a similar problem with the audio firmware that was causing my
PVR-500 to make silent recordings. If that's not it, your firmware file
might be corrupted, you could try re-installing it.
