yes, even 2.6.12 should be recent enough.

It produces only an offset of 26 lines here, caused by the new Elsa

Only an offset of two lines caused by the new #ifdef for the XCeive
tuner. This part is needed to set the mt2050 in digital mode again.

Since it seems to produce problems for more people, a regenerated
version of Hartmut's patch against the recent "hg clone
http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb" is attached.
It should do if placed into the mercurial v4l-dvb top level directory
"patch --dry-run -p 1 < pinnacle300i-regenerated-20060216.patch".
If so, drop the --dry-run and apply. I would like to see the first
saa7134-dvb hybrid card alive again everywhere :)
