No, it's there.

For anyone else wanting to use it either a) download 
to the current directory or b) patch the /usr/src/linux-`uname 
-r`/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware with the attached patch and then 
run perl get_dvb_firmware and it extracts the file.

And, the hash for 3xHybrid.sys is exactly what it was before:

$ unzip AVerTVHD_MCE_A180_Drv_v1.2.2.16.zip
Archive:  AVerTVHD_MCE_A180_Drv_v1.2.2.16.zip
  inflating: 34avstrm.cat           
  inflating: 34CoInstaller.dll      
  inflating: 3xHybrid.sys           
  inflating: A180.inf               
$ ls
34avstrm.cat       A180.inf                             get_dvb_firmware
34CoInstaller.dll  AVerTVHD_MCE_A180_Drv_v1.2.2.16.zip
3xHybrid.sys       dvb-fe-nxt2004.fw
$ md5sum 3xHybrid.sys
111cb885b1e009188346d72acfed024c  3xHybrid.sys

Which lines up with the line from the script:

my $hash = "111cb885b1e009188346d72acfed024c";
