Hello,

absolutely right, works fine, thank you.
I am sorry I haven't found the time till now to give short message of
the status till now (as I use to give when having asked on a list)

DVB-T everything OK (Ubuntu 8.x and Debian testing), analogue works by
using this PCI-DMA "trick" you mentionend (sox with alsa and a 22050
audio-rate gave best results) One thing to mention: a few channels come
only mute.
<http://www.sasag.ch/angebot/kabelTV.php> (BR and superRTL, are the ones
as far as I remember).
It could be, that using a oss=0 option with saa7134 allows, when
switching to another, "working" channel, then "v4lctl volume mute off"
and switching back, can get you around - I had to few time to test
it/was not important enough; this problem seems to be a known issue, I
had later found some hits on this.

regards
