Ok, I tried to open it a little more and look on the other side of
the tuner PCB, the only thing I can read on the chip is "TAIFUN", but
I can't see the number. Might be "4T" at the end. Might be an
Infineon TUA 6034?

For mine it is:
So, I don't know how they count in the Windows world, but the i2c
address seems to be indeed different ;)
I also tried to tune to a station under Windows and then boot into
linux and do a scan, but get the same non-results:
>>> tune to:
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0011
WARNING: filter timeout pid 0x0000
tzap -r also does the same as before.

Well, this would only be a problem if I wanted the device to run on
my G3 iBook, but then again I'd have to make it run under MacOS first ;)
