This Medion CTX 953_V.1.4.2 DVB-T/analog hybrid PCI-card (P/N 2003 2576) came with the ALDI-machine described here.
It uses the following chips:
NXP SAA 7131E/03/G CH1394 SF8510.1 TSG 07172 NXP TDA 10046A SF9349.1 256 07151 NXP 8275AC1 CMOS 38 TP607111
Running the command # lspci -v yeilds:
05:01.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7133/SAA7135 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev d1) Subsystem: Creatix Polymedia GmbH Unknown device 0010 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 22 Memory at ff9ff800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K] Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
and # lspci -vn:
05:01.0 0480: 1131:7133 (rev d1) Subsystem: 16be:0010 Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 22 Memory at ff9ff800 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K] Capabilities:  Power Management version 2
The card has an S-Video IN, an Audio-IN (3.5mm), and a Composite-IN.
Both analog and DVB-T work fine on Linux. This card seems to be based on the TIGER-S design with external LNA, which is "card=109". I *think* that a firmware file is NOT needed, firmware is instead loaded from the card's eeprom. The card does not appear to load a firmware. If it IS needed, either use the updated get_dvb_firmware script or use the file "TT_PCI_2.19h_28_11_2006/software/OEM/PCI/App/ttlcdacc.dll" contained in http://technotrend-online.com/download/software/219/TT_PCI_2.19h_28_11_2006.zip, which you'll have to rename to /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-tda10046.fw.
Generally, you should read http://article.gmane.org/gmane.comp.video.video4linux/34255.
RF remote control
ALDI also sold a remote bundled with the computer mentioned above. It is NOT connected to the TV-card, but rather sends its RF-signals to an X10-USB-receiver.
The remote works nicely using lirc-0.8.2 or higher (0.8.1 does NOT work correctly, you have to press most keys twice because of a missing "toggle_bit_mask"-setting). The modules lirc_atiusb and lirc_dev have to be loaded. Make sure that the kernels atiusb and atiusb2 modules are NOT loaded (don't compile them), they don't work.
This is the lsusb info about the X10-USB receiver: "Bus 003 Device 002: ID 0bc7:0006 X10 Wireless Technology, Inc."
This is my lircd.conf:
