@JohnRobson Have a look at the openelec-dvb-firmware(-git) package. It contains much more firmware files and likely the one you require, too.

the package() section should be changed to add a subdirectory:

cp -a "${srcdir}/firmware/"*.fw* "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/firmware"

instead of cp -a "${srcdir}/"*.fw* "${pkgdir}/usr/lib/firmware"

Could you change the description to eg. "LinuxTV firmware bundle containing many firmware files", "DVB firmware bundle from LinuxTV" or simply "LinuxTV firmware bundle"?

"many firmwares" just sounds horrible to me and I'm not even a native English speaker.

Also some more fw now owned by linux-firmware:

rm $pkgdir/usr/lib/firmware/sms1xxx-{hcw-55xxx-dvbt-02,hcw-55xxx-isdbt-02,nova-a-dvbt-01,nova-b-dvbt-01,stellar-dvbt-01}.fw

This week i'm a little bussy, but I will do the best.
Spect updated in this or the next (likely the next) week, but if you know the solution I can update even early

The "cp *.fw ..." in the PKGBUILD causes an issue, as dvb-ttpci firmware files are not packaged.
