[linux-dvb] AverMedia AVerTv Hybrid +FM CardBus drivers

Hi,

I own the Avermedia AVerTV Hybrid +FM CardBus, which is based on a
Philips SAA7134 as far as I know.
I'm currently using a 2.6.15 Kernel and noticed the dvb-t part of the
card is not recognized.
Dmesg says the card is UNKNOWN/GENERIC (see below). The card uses mt352
as its frontend, because I saw that AverMedia actually provides
linux-drivers (module saa713x and mt352) which are unfortunately
outdated (Kernels 2.6.11 and 2.6.13).

Now I tried several card-types by reloading the saa7134-driver with
card=1.. card=2.. etc and several tuner-types with no success.

lspci -v:
0000:03:00.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7133 Video
Broadcast Decoder (rev d1)
        Subsystem: Avermedia Technologies Inc: Unknown device f436
        Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 64, IRQ 11
        Memory at f6000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=2K]
        Capabilities: <available only to root>

Loading saa7134 by modprobe saa7134 card=46 registers the card as

[4295549.397000] saa7133[0]: subsystem: 1461:f436, board: AVerMedia
Cardbus TV/Radio (E500) [card=46,insmod option]

and the status LED of the card lights on.

Which information is required for further process? Providing physical
information for a CardBus card is certainly difficult, so what can I do,
offer, provide?

Regards,
Martin
