Hey, I've update, now the dvb works with 2.6.25 ant the v4l-dvb hg, I 
was sure that I already tried this combinations...

Now, only the analog input have to work (this was the main reason I 
bought this card), is it really so hard, because I
 saw that the HVR-1600 and the HVR-1800 is supported.

greetings and many thanks
Torben
