[linux-dvb] Help With LifeView FLYDVB-T Driver Install?

I have been trying to install my DVB-T TV cards in Linux for several
months now on and off and I think going off the LinuxTV DVB Wiki my
card should now be supported.

>From what I have read so far I probably need the firmware for the
TDA10046 chip but the hardware supported list says I only need the
SAA7134 which SUSE10.1 has assigned to both cards but only a
/dev/video0 and /dev/video1 has been created which I think is wrong as
this should be /dev/dvb/adapter0 or 1.

If I use YaST - Hardware - TV Card and try to click the Tuner button I
get an error No Tuner Is Available For The Selected Card.  If I was
guessing perhaps the SAA7134 is only providing the SVIDEO in support
and that is why there is no tuner.  Probably completed wrong on this
however :)

Can anyone help on what I need to do as I am completely at a loss of
what I need to try next? Do I need to install some packages, compile
some code, extract the firmware?  I can provide log files, photos of
the card (look the same as on the site already) or whatever is needed.
