I have a Fujitsu Siemens Activy Media Center 530 with a dvb-t card.

lspci gives me this:
01:04.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7146 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: Philips Semiconductors Unknown device 5f60
        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 17
        Region 0: Memory at fddff000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=512]

The saa7146 driver doesn't find the card - a no /dev/dvb* devices are created.

I found this in the archives:
however my device is 5f60 where his card had 5f61

I took the attached patch 
and changed all occurrences of 5f61 to 5f60.

a "make reload" gave me this in dmesg:
saa7146: register extension 'budget dvb'.
ACPI: PCI Interrupt 0000:01:04.0[A] -> GSI 19 (level, low) -> IRQ 17
saa7146: found saa7146 @ mem e08ba000 (revision 1, irq 17) (0x1131,0x5f60).
saa7146 (0): dma buffer size 192512
DVB: registering new adapter (TT-Budget/WinTV-NOVA-T  PCI)
adapter failed MAC signature check
encoded MAC from EEPROM was 
test_config / it = 0
budget: A frontend driver was not found for device 1131/7146 subsystem 
You must set an I/O address with io=0x20c or io=0x30c

And /dev/dvb/adapter0 showed up!
But only these devices are created:
...so interface0 is missing (as the message "A frontend driver was not found" 
says allready)

What could I do, to get my card working?
