Thanks for the information. One minor thing is that you don't need the
tvaudio module. It causes the tuner not to be detected properly.
Few days ago, i learned that there is a new "base design" of the card
manufactor which is not compatible with the philips drivers. looks like
your board is based on this too. I have access to a cardbus version.
I need to find out what causes the incompatibility. I will start working
on this soon.

Best regards
