hmm, 300i and 310i are very different cards.

Yes, there is another pitfall for french users.
You need option secam=l for the tuner module.

Only the recent mercurial with Hartmut's latest audio fixes allows to
select SECAM-L directly from an app like xawtv.

Only in case it is a 310i with saa7131e, option audio_ddep=10 for
saa7134 might help as well to force NICAM stereo, but isn't the best
choice if you have also MONO analog broadcast.

Good Luck,
Hermann
