Hello,

I recently got my hands on a Terratec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C at an
acceptable price, and thought I would do some testing with it.
I installed Xubuntu 6.10 (which uses kernel 2.6.17-10) on the test machine.
The card was detected, but there were some errors in the dmesg output:
[17179586.328000] Linux video capture interface: v1.00
[17179586.352000] saa7146: register extension 'budget_av'.

[17179587.104000] budget-av: cam ejected

So I upgraded the drivers via source, using the instructions at the
DVB wiki. Compiling and installing the drivers was easy.
Still, there are errors with this version:

Complete dmesgs are at this page: http://tingox.googlepages.com/c1200dvb-c_linux
I've searched Google, and the archives of this mailing list, but
haven't found a solution so far.
Is this card supposed to work?
If so, do anybody have pointers and / or suggestions?
