Best you first provide good pictures (both sides of the card) and a list of 
contained ICs. (I suggest to add it to the linuxtv.org dvb-wiki).

Please alsa add lspci -vvnn output, and dmesg after using modprobe saa7134 
i2c_scan=1


If I am right this card is based on similar chips as the AverTV DVB-S Pro 
A700, that I try to add support for at the moment.
