lsmod output doesnt tell us anything... It's dmesg that we would 
normally want to see...

Regardless, Yes, saa7134 cards ARE supported by the linux kernel for use 
with both analog and digital television.

This doesn't necessarily mean that your card is supported... But it 
certainly can be, and might be already.

If your card is supported, then do:

modprobe saa7134-dvb

This module doesnt load automatically.

Most likely, this will do it for you.  If it doesnt, then you'll have to 
let us know which card it is that you have.  It is possible that it 
might be a new board that we could have only recently added support 
for.  In this case, you'll have to install the newer modules from cvs:
