Sorry for the late reply. I had no possibility to test you suggestions

I took the latest get_dvb_firmware from mercurial, but it appears to be no
different from the 2.6.18-rc7 one. So I suppose the firmware I had was

Ok, this one seemed to make the difference! Now I finally get

[13415.008749] tda1004x: found firmware revision 29 -- ok
and the dvb side works. (Though it still requires use to use the fm radio
first to select the correct antenna input, as was mentioned.)

I can't get any sound out of analog tv (picture works) nor fm radio (seems
to tune, though), but I'm likely missing the cable. Or is analog sound
supposed to work without the cable from the card to sound card input?

At this point I'm not yet interested in the remote (until I get at least all
the other wires sorted.) I'll try to give it a try later.
