If it's a T220 I think you're out of luck. Check out 
http://linuxtv.org/hg/v4l-dvb/file/18f323a05fbe/linux/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.saa7134 
for a list of cards (should be somewhere under 
/usr/src/linux/Documentation as well). The Compro VideoMate T200,T200a 
and T300 is listed, but no T220. I did see some T220 posts a while back. 
Maybe they will be of some use to you.

What is strange is that your card is not detected as UNKNOWN. Maybe it's 
because the vendor:product of 185b:c901 is the same as the T200's or 
maybe YaST added an 'options saa7134 card=72' somewhere...

Seeing as you have a mt352 based demod it should be easier to add 
support for your card. There isn't even a demodulator module for my 
ZL10131 based S300 :-(
