Hy,
I've a serious problem with my LifeView FlyDVB Hybrid PCI card.
I've tried many different settings (i2c_scan, card, and all other suggestions found on the web)
but the dvb-t card functionality is still very random.

Here is the 'Everyday' dmesg saa7134 log:

Could you help me please?
Do you need more debugging information?
Actually (as shown into the log) module is loaded without any options.
Thank you for your suggestions!
