I suggest you build a new kernel with just the following DVB options set
When you boot up the new kernel in runlevel 3, use the snapshot from
make install, depmod -ae, reboot and you should be fine. I have only
been able to get kaffeine to work with this card, with kaffeine, you can
scan and see all the channels, then select each one you need and "Add
Selected". In the video4linux directory, I had to set all the options in
Make.config to =m to get all the modules built.

Xawtv tells me it can't display the video stream,
/dev/dvb/adapter0/video0 never gets created by udev, creating it from
the command line doesn't help either, someone recently posted either to
this list or the linuxtv list that no video adapter is associated with
Perhaps artsd is grabbing /dev/dsp, "lsof /dev/dsp" will tell you what
is using it, if it's artsd, you can use the KDE Control Center to have
artsd timeout after, say 5 seconds idle.

Working great here on Mandrake 10.1 with a 184.108.40.206 kernel, first got it
going on 2.6.10. The standard kernels don't seem to have the dvb-pll
module, but they all seem to be there in the -mm kernels, I must try
2.6.12-rc2-mm3 later and see if that works both with DVB and Nvidia
video driver 7167.
