Hi, I'm trying to get an Avermedia M1155 Hybrid Aalogue/DVB tuner card to work with my Ubuntu Linux 8.04 (hardy) installation on a Sony VGX-TP1E media centre PC. In dmesg the card is identified as a Philips saa1733/1735:

  
[17205.851529] saa7130/34: v4l2 driver version 0.2.14 loaded

etc

However the board is shown as GENERIC, board=0. lsmod shows this:

I've had a look at the supported board list at http://gentoo-wiki.com/HARDWARE_saa7134#i2c_Scan but my card does not seem to be present.

The saa1734 driver is loading, but there is no /dev/dvb or /dev//v4l directory.

Is this card not supported yet, or does it need to be manually loaded with the appropriate parameters?

I am quite willing to help with development and testing.
