Hello!
I tried for days [or weeks... well] to find a way to use this card [cf topic and bellow]

What I tried :
- getting latest gentoo kernel : 2.6.22-r5;
- getting latest mercurial version for v4l

putting all this stuff together gave me some nice results in /dev [/dev/dvb/ appears] and dmesg [see bellow]

The I tried with 2 differents programmes :
1- kdetv :
error : "unable to grab video" and he tels me to play with v4l2 settings [well.. there are NO settings to play with -.-]
Whe I launch it through a term, I have :
kdetv: WARNING: V4L2Dev: VIDIOC_QBUF failed: Bad file descriptor
or :
kdetv: WARNING: V4L2Dev: VIDIOC_DQBUF failed: Inappropriate ioctl for device
kdetv: WARNING: V4L2Dev::enqueueBuffer(): broken id: 3057808381

-> Doesn't work....

2- tvtime :
this one do no error... I started a scan, using "television" input.... it found nothing. I'm in "pal" tv mode, "europe" settings for frequences... so I guess it should work.

Does anyone of you use this card successfully?

Thanks !

some outputs :
