So far so good...

I installed different CVS-Versions now. Since I installed 2005/07/14, the  
Pinnacle 300i does not run anymore. The following files were changed in  
the 2005/07/14-Snapshot:
U video4linux/ChangeLog
U video4linux/bttvp.h
U video4linux/compat.h
U video4linux/cx88-video.c
U video4linux/cx88.h
U video4linux/dpl3518.c
U video4linux/ir-common.c
U video4linux/ir-common.h
U video4linux/saa7134.h
U video4linux/tea5761.c
U video4linux/tea5767.c
U video4linux/tuner-core.c
U video4linux/tveeprom.c
U video4linux/v4l1-compat.c
U video4linux/v4l2-common.c

It is not Possible to tune to any channel anymore. /var/log/messages only  
repeates the following output:
mt352_pinnacle_init called
There are no errors reportet while loading the modules, but tzap does not  
get a lock anymore.
Even if i downgrade the modules and load them again, I have to reboot to  
get my card running again. So I think that the data that is send to the  
card might be wrong and the card is set to a wrong mode.

I will browse through the source and see, what has changed. If I find  
something appearing relevant to me, I will report.
