By "Happuage 950 device", I suppose you mean HVR-950. Just to confirm if
you have the right firmware file at the right place, according to  it
should be a file "/lib/firmware/xc3028-v27.fw". And on the same page
they say that you need "a recent snapshot of LinuxTV's v4l-dvb drivers".
Do you have them installed?
To verify that the firmware gets loaded, please unplug the device and
then run the command
tail -n0 -f /var/log/messages
in a terminal. Now plug it in again and check the messages. Among them
should be something like "downloading firmware from file xc3028-v27.fw".
You can press Ctrl-C to stop the tail command. Now check that you have a
directory "/dev/dvb/adapter0". If you have that directory, you should be
able to receive digital TV. Probably you should first scan for available
channels, but I can't tell you how to do that with me-tv.

No need to activate anything. If you have a working driver and the
firmware at the right place, the kernel should handle everything on its
own when you insert the device.
