Stupid, stupid me...
I am very sorry Rainer for the extra work I caused.
Tried new kernel, took a pause and then started searching more info.
Then I found this:
To: Linux and Kernel Video <video4linux-list at xxxxxxxxxx>
Subject: Pinnacle PCTV 310i PAL (w/ DVB-T, FM and IR-2.5mm)
From: Pedro Palhoto Matos <plpm at xxxxxxxxxxxxxx>
Date: Tue, 9 Aug 2005 23:54:20 +0100
With an "lspci -v" command, this is what I got:
0000:00:0c.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA713X Audio+video
broadcast decoder (rev d0)
Subsystem: Pinnacle Systems Inc.: Unknown device 002f
Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 16
Memory at dfffb800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable)
Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
Looks pretty much like mine...
And reply is
Your card is not yet supported by the video4linux drivers since the
TDA8275A tuner is not supported yet. This card is very different from
I intend to implement support for it in september. I will first focus on
another card but it should not be a big deal to gt your card working as
well as soon as we have support for all chips.
If you need to have a a linux driver for a hybrid card right now, i can
remommend the Pinnacle 300i. There is also support for the hybrid cards
by Creatix with saa7134 and the FMD1216 tuner. These mainly get sold by
Medion. There also is limited (sensitivity) support for the LifeView
Flyvideo Duo DVB-T. Last not least I can provide you a test version for
the Compro Videomate 300 DVB-T without recote control support.
So, my card is not what I thought it to be and there's no drivers around yet.
Sorry for this, it seems I'll have to wait for a while.
