if you are not on recent v4l-dvb from linux-tv.org or on some latest
kernels, you need to "modprobe saa7134-dvb debug=1" manually.
This goes for saa7134-alsa too until today. See the v4l-wiki for that.

Still interested in your "dmesg" for saa7134 card=88 and detection of
tuner and other chips with i2c_scan=1.

As said, a Kworld NB 220 PCI card is unknown to me.
Try google, there are only this new NB-TV 220 pcmcia/cardbus.

Here are good details of the hardware on that one.

This one _could eventually_ work with card=88.
To try FlyDVB-T Duo with different audio clock, we can override with
with audio_clock=N seems not to have any advantage against card=88 on a
device without analog radio and remote.

If you can't verify that you have almost the same on a PCI variant,
as listed previously for chips, xtals and i2c addresses, we need all
details. There is not much left for try and error luck on such recent

That you have a new Kworld card with new subdevice ID is all we have so
far. Also nothing else in the eeprom and no patterns on gpio pins.
