I have exactly the same problem here with a KNC1 DVB-T card. The card is
working fine under Windows, but I can't get it to work under Linux with
the DVB drivers included in Linux 2.6.10 or 2.6.11. I have the firmware
"dvb-fe-tda10046.fw" installed in  /usr/lib/hotplug/firmware/ and
hotplug running.

With the DVB drivers of kernel 2.6.11, I have these logs when loading
budget-av and starting my userspace application :

Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: Linux video capture interface: v1.00
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: saa7146: register extension 'budget
dvb /w video in'.
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem d0858000
(revision 1, irq 10) (0x1894,0x0030).
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: DVB: registering new adapter (KNC1
DVB-T).
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: adapter failed MAC signature check
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: encoded MAC from EEPROM was
ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff:ff
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: KNC1-0: MAC addr = 00:09:d6:6d:00:2e
Mar 18 11:35:49 jade-test kernel: DVB: registering frontend 0 (Philips
TDA10046H DVB-T)...
Mar 18 11:43:56 jade-test kernel: tda1004x: waiting for firmware
upload...

The firmware upload process is OK because I would get some error
messages when if it failed. The userspace application reports a "read
error". I know that the userspace application is OK because it works
fine with a Technotrend budget DVB-T (saa7146 + tda100045H) with the
same DVB drivers.

So it is a driver problem, let's go and fix it !
