I have no idea what causes your problem. Here's a short
description what av7110_bootarm() does:

- put the av7110 in reset state
- test if we can access the dual-ported RAM on the card
  by writing something to it via PCI and DEBI (saa7146's
  "data bus extension interface") and reading it back in
  byteswapped mode
- load a small bootloader in to DPRAM
- release the av7110 out of reset
- load_dram() then waits for an ack from the av7110 bootloader

You could play with the timeout in av7110_hw.c:waitdebi(),
but I would be surprised if that would fix it.
