[linux-dvb] Satelco EasyWatch DVB-C -- can't find channels

I bought a Satelco EasyWatch DVB-C card. I downloaded the newest source 
form linuxtv.org with Mercurial and compiled and installed the drivers. 
The /dev/dvb directory wasn't created. Then I applied this patch[1] and 
retried. The device files under /dev/dvb were now created and Kaffeine 
happily let me explore its DVB functionality.

Unfortunately I can't find any channels. During the search I get an SNR 
of 100% all the time, while signal is 0%. I've tried stabbing 
budget_av.c even a bit further with no luck.

I'm not sure which modules I should load, I'm fairly sure I need at 
least saa1746, tda10021, budget_av and dvb_ttpci. anything else?

Here's what lspci -vv says:

05:06.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
         Subsystem: KNC One Unknown device 002c
         Control: I/O- Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- 
ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B-
         Status: Cap- 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=medium 
 >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR-
         Latency: 32 (3750ns min, 9500ns max)
         Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 66
         Region 0: Memory at d0000000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]

I'm using Kubuntu Edgy with kernel 2.6.17.

Any ideas are appreciated.
