If you've already installed the firmware but don't know what's going on, 
I had the same problem for awhile. IVTV was looking for the drivers to 
be in /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware, which didn't exist on my system. I just 
found out where the actual firmware was on my machine (updatedb && 
locate v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw) and then symlinked it to the 
/usr/lib/hotplug/firmware directory, along with all the other files that 
were in the same directory as v4l-cx2341x-enc.fw (ln -s 
/path/to/firmware/ /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware).
