Hmm, I that Rainer Tim is referring to.. and I had a working setup for the
Pinnacle 300i card until I switched to kernel versions beyond 2.6.10 with
video4linux from bytesex.org... cvssnapshots. The latest working driver
version for the combination of saa7134 and mt352 for me is 0.2.13 !

"read_reg errors".

For me it's in /usr/src/video4linux/scripts/merge-trees.sh

Michael, you say something about two cvs trees. Where are these, please ?
