Hermann is right, SNAKE has no analog tuner. These boards indeed share the same PCI ID,
This code fragment reads the tuner ID from the eeprom to find out which board is there.

Aha! I modified my board that it no longer runs with the current driver. But i observed
something similar

Don't have the time today, but lets roll back history: Not absolutely sure but if
i remember correcly, the initialization sequence can be critical with hybrid tuners /
NIM modules. The tda9887 may only be visible on I2C after a certain bit in the MOPLL
is set (in byte4?)
