It works !!
Here my configuration :
Ubuntu 6.06 - Kernel Vanilla 2.6.18 - v4l-dvb from today 05 October 2006.

Here my step.

1- cd v4l dir
2- patch -p1 < pinnacle........patch
3- make all & make install
4- perl *path_to_v4l_dir*/linux/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware tda10046
5- cp 
6- only for my personal reason i prefer to load manually the module so i 
put in /etc/modprobe.d/blacklist the line: blacklist saa7134
7- reboot

On new session :

8- modprobe saa7134

11- With kaffeine i try to rescan and view channels --> that's all ok!!

Sorry for my long report but i think that all details in a testing 
procedure are very important!
Hope that's all is clear!!

Theres a remote....any chance to get it works??
