The saa7142_dvb could be loaded in /etc/modules on debian (distro specific).

I'm suspecting that the 'normal television' modules is capturing the
hotplug 'spot' though. If I where you, I would look into modules.conf
configuration, but as this is very distro specific I'll just touch the

In my modules.conf I have lines like:

post-install snd-es968 /lib/alsa/modprobe-post-install snd-es968

But you may need to put them into /etc/modutils/ or similar
to make them take effect, have a look at info modprobe,
info modules.conf and similar.
