wget https://raw.github.com/torvalds/linux/master/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware
perl get_dvb_firmware it9135
sudo cp dvb-usb-it9135-01.fw /lib/firmware/

Plug the stick out/in and check dmesg to see if the stick is recognized. Install the me-tv package, and start me-tv. Recognizing the channels automatically didn't work well for me, as the ones I wanted were missed.

Scanning the channels

So I checked the frequencies for my region of Germany at http://www.ueberallfernsehen.de/dvbtdownloads127.pdf and updated the template given in /usr/share/dvb/dvb-t/de-Bayern accordingly. I installed the dvb-apps package that has the scan utility and call it with the template

scan dvb-t > channels.conf

Watch TV

Finally restart me-tv, and View-channels-add-import a channels.conf. First time I did this me-tv crashed, so I first removed all channels that had been found before, and then imported again.
