Hi Rob and the list,

I'm running the Pinnacle 300i card with rather old code. See below:

it is working, with some issues though. There are some glitches both in
video and audio, but after some time running the card works.
You may wish to have a look at http://www.puuhis.net/htpc/
and at http://de.gentoo-wiki.com/Pinnacle_300i though it is in German
and at http://linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/How_to_build_from_CVS
or ask me for help, config files and the video4linux archive I am using.
Wishing not to hurt anyone, I must say that any archive after the one
implementing version 0.2.13 of the saa7134 driver(s) -- as implemented
in current "bleeding-edge" kernels did not work for me.
