THis card is supported for quite a while now, but it was broken for a
some time. I would recommend to get the recent version of the driver
from www.linuxtv.org, either the official code or from my personal
repository http://linuxtv.org/hg/~hhackmann/v4l-dvb
you should load the driver in 2 steps:
modprobe saa7134
modprobe saa7134-dvb if you wish dvb-t support

There is one known problem with mythtv: you can not use dvb-t and
analog parallel, not even CVBS. This is something to be fixed later.

Good luck
