I don't know whether it applies to your problem, but I need to shutdown
my backend completely before I can switch it back on again. A reboot
will leave the card in a "warm state". Check your syslog for

| dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T 500 Dual DVB-T' in cold state, will
try to load a firmware

before this line appears

| dvb-usb: found a 'Hauppauge Nova-T 500 Dual DVB-T' in warm state

Otherwise the firmware will not load.
