I didn't compile these things as modules so I can't list them, but I guess 
you're lacking the "budget" module and maybe also the budget_ci module. I 
have all three selected (budget, _ci, _av) because I didn't know exactly what 
was needed.

Selecting the budget module will also automatically include the correct tuner 
module which will appear as not selectable but will actually be compiled.

I'm using 2.6.12. At my first attempt, I only selected budget_ci and had the 
same behavior.

You can check if your card is correctly detected with "dmesg". Mine reads 
this :

saa7146: register extension 'budget dvb'.
saa7146: register extension 'budget dvb /w video in'.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt Link [LNKB] enabled at IRQ 12
PCI: setting IRQ 12 as level-triggered
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:00:0d.0[A] -> Link [LNKB] -> GSI 12 (level, low) -> 
IRQ 12
saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem d8810000 (revision 1, irq 12) (0x153b,0x1156).
DVB: registering new adapter (Terratec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C).
adapter failed MAC signature check
encoded MAC from EEPROM was 
budget-av: ci interface initialised.
KNC1-0: MAC addr = 00:0a:ac:01:b3:c8
DVB: registering frontend 0 (Philips TDA10021 DVB-C)...
saa7146: register extension 'budget_ci dvb'.

With your current configuration you probably only have the "saa7146" lines (or 
only one of them.
