So, it seems that the tuner is being detected, but the light on it does not turn on? Not sure what is going on?

I have been searching for a solution to this all weekend without any luck. I remember reading that ehci_hcd is the problem, but I'm not sure if disabling it is a good idea. I don't want my USB ports to go back to v1.1.
