I would happy to test this, but I have problems to make the working 
saa7134-dvb with linuxtv CVS. I can't use Gerd's one coz the dependences.
Hm, but this seems to be compatible with one from kernel source tree. 
But there must be something nasty, coz it cannot be compiled, and if I 
compile it, it cannot be loaded to kernel due to these unresolved symbols.

kernel: saa7134_dvb: Unknown symbol videobuf_dvb_unregister
kernel: saa7134_dvb: Unknown symbol videobuf_dvb_register

I'm out of ideas :-(

I have Pinnacle MC 300i with kernel 2.6.10 from Debian distro.
