so then, I don't know about which card we are actually talking.

The eeprom has nothing and gpio init is 0x0.

I just assumed the last from Kworld I have seen for now, the NB-TV 220
cardbus. On kworld.com.tw it is not even listed until today, but was
seen in the UK some weeks back first time.

We have some "how to add a new card" stuff on the v4l-wiki then.

Nevertheless, to try card=88.

"modprobe -vr saa7134-dvb saa7134-alsa tuner tda827x"
"modprobe -v saa7134 i2c_scan=1"

And depending on your kernel version and depending on your analog sound
out connectors saa7134-alsa.

Else, all chips, all xtals, all connectors and high resolution pics ;)

Cheers,
Hermann
