Never mind! Markus Rechberger pointed me to the drivers at mcentral.de. I 
checked out the em28xx-new and ... it worked!!!

Geee! I was running around this issue for months.

Still: kdetv scans all the possible channels on my webcam (!), missing the 
fact that my TerraTec Card does now provide a /dev/dvb but as the 2nd V4L-
Device it's on /dev/video1 ... hehehe ... but kaffeine seems quite smarter and 
gets around that, showing DVB-TV! Yeah! =)

What a relief!
