See above, you must unload all related modules previously with "modprobe
-vr ...". Can't believe that you have a custom kernel with all
statically compiled in.

Then "modprobe saa7134 i2c_scan=1".
Then "modprobe saa7134-dvb" or set "options saa7134 ...", "options
saa7134-dvb ..." amd whatsoever in /etc/modprobe.conf or what ever
Ubuntu uses for it and "depmod -a". Use "modinfo module_name" to know
more.

What says "uname -a"?

Where can one buy this card?

Cheers,
Hermann
