The patch was created against an about 1 week old version, it is quite likely
that it changed meanwhile. I guess the patches in saa7134-cards.c were rejected.
Please apply the changes manually - at least the one for the pinnacle 300i.
It is a major portion of the trick. Also please keep in mind that the tda9887
module needs to be loaded manually before tuner. I have a patch for this
If you have inconsistent module versions, i guess the reason is that the
kernel is older than 2.6.12. In this case, the dvb modules will not be updated.
If it is desired, i can also generate a patch for this to make it work for
at least 2.6.11.
