Hi there,

I've got exactly the same card, and just got it working on Edgy.  I am 
running a newer kernel (required for some other hardware), but I think 
2.6.17 should be find for the 777.

For some reason the card isn't automatically detected (I'm not sure what 
part of the boot process is responsible for this.... but it's not quite 

To get this card to work just manually load the module.  To load the 
module manually:

    modprobe saa7134-dvb

To load this module at boot time, add "saa7134-dvb" to the /etc/modules 

fyi, this is how my card appears in lspci.

    04:09.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7134 Video 
Broadcast Decoder (rev 01)
