Well for some older revisions of the card 1.3, 1.5 and
2.1 there was a hardware modification that could be
done that would allow a GPIO on the SAA7146 to
modulate a square pulse making the premium card act
like if it would be a budget card and thus allow it to
capture a full TransportStream (TS) from a transponder
this is good if you would want to be able to record
two channels from the same transponder. This patch
also need some driver change, but this has been
included in the lastet CVS, so you should be able to
turn this on... 
Why I thought that maybe the people over at
TechnoTrend was that I noticed that there were tracks
from the SAA7146 at the same places that the budget
cards has tracks... I'll guess time will tell... Maybe
it some insurance for the the DVB2 system that is
thought to be MPEG4HD...
