hm, that was recently introduced by Hartmut to improve it for those
cards.

Peter, does Hartmut's repo or the recent mercurial master still work for
you?

Might we have a hardware change now? Think no.

No, it has 4e42:0306. Also these have different tuners for analog and
DVB. You might wait for a comment from Hartmut.

No, not reported. Your tuner is not oparable this way, the probe failed.
Either it is still some loadorder/timing problem or the hardware
changed. You might try to use analog TV first and things like "modprobe
saa7134-alsa", "modprobe -vr saa7134-dvb" and then load it again.

Does analog still work?
You might do a cold boot first, 30 seconds no power connected and then
try only with card=94.

Cheers,
Hermann
