Hi David, 

> I've a ANALOG Sat card with a saa7146 chip and I try to get this card working, but no success at all!

Just in case you did not find it, the project page is here:
http://www.themm.net/~mihu/linux/saa7146/mf2.html 

> I've tried several kernels (debian kernel 2.4.27, plain 2.4.22, v4l2 patched 2.4.22 and 2.6.11) but everytime I get other compile failures :(  (And I've tried many hours to solve them).

Did you follow the instructions regarding 2.6 in the README file in 
mediafocus-2.4? 

I apologize that I cannot give you any detailed informations, but I still 
wasn't able to get my hands on a mf2 card to help Torsten Tittmann in 
getting the driver more in shape. 

You don't live near Düsseldorf or Bremen/Hannover, don't you?

As far as I have heard, you should use an uptodate 2.6 kernel, then follow 
the instructions. Please try again and post the compilation error here. 

> Thanx for ANY help!
