I am using a DVB-T USB TV Stick from mygica. I want to use it in Ubuntu 14.04 I tried with w_scan to detect DVB USB.

w_scan -c DE -X > channels.conf
w_scan version 20130331 (compiled for DVB API 5.10)
using settings for GERMANY
DVB aerial
DVB-T Europe
scan type TERRESTRIAL, channellist 4
output format czap/tzap/szap/xine
WARNING: could not guess your codepage. Falling back to 'UTF-8'
output charset 'UTF-8', use -C <charset> to override
Info: using DVB adapter auto detection.
Please check wether dvb driver is loaded and
verify that no dvb application (i.e. vdr) is running.

But it was not detecting the DVB-T stick. How can I get it to work?
