well last night I was successful in getting my card to work, and to get it to tune QAM channels. I changed back to gentoo sources and upgraded them to 2.6.20-gentoo-r5 (i was on r3 before). using the kernel modules I could not tune to any channels. So, I emerged v4l-dvb-hg, which actually emerged this time. Then CityK walked me through how to use hg and obtain the kernel-sync sources. Once I had those modules compiled and installed, the card worked great. I still have a few channels that won't get any sound (and I tried adding (ac3) to the kaffeine dvb list as was suggested earlier), but I do have a handful of channels that work great (QAM).
