Summing up the test results, i have the impression that this card is different
from what we have yet.
I am almost sure that the problem lies in the GPIO configuration. Please try the
following:
Please keep forcing the card type to 94
In the configuration structure (saa7134-dvb.c):
static struct tda1004x_config ads_tech_duo_config = {
change the entry
.gpio_config   = TDA10046_GP00_I,
to
.gpio_config   = TDA10046_GP10,
I expect that this makes DVB-T work but it might break analog TV.
Please try also
.gpio_config   = TDA10046_GP10_I,
This should make analog work again but it might carsh the channel decoder
(bad firmware) if this is the case, please report this. It might be necessary to
increase a delay in the channel decoder initialization procedure.

Good luck
  Hartmut
