Yup - thats what I expected.

Just tried my card - it reports the following, and the TDA10021 is detected 
saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem d0994800 (revision 1, irq 185) (0x153b,0x1156).

Its a rebadged KNC1 DVBC card - Terratec Cinergy. I dunno quite what to 
suggest now... obviously SOMETHING is different (as it works in windows), but 
AFAIK, it should be working with the original code. 

Hmm, I see the tda10021 has a configurable i2c address; could you give the 
attached patch a go?

If that doesn't work, it might be something else like the PCI bus setup under 
linux; try moving it to a different slot just to make sure (you've probably 
already tried that if you've had it for months I suppose).
