I think it should not be a solution of this problem just to use an earlier
kernel version.

But if you want to use a earlier kernel version please keep in mind that
you have to flash the latest firmware onto your card using the WinXP
driver. If your card does not use the latest firmware, you will not get it
running under linux.

Nevertheless this is not the solution of my problem. Can someone tell me
if the Pinnacle 300i is not supported by V4L anymore?
