don't have time to follow this closely anymore.

But forcing it to card=78 is plain wrong. It has an early additional LNA
in confirmed config = 2 status.

Your card should be auto detected and previously always was, based on
what we have in saa7134-cards.c and further for it. (saa7134-dvb and
related tuner/demod stuff)

	}, {
		.vendor       = PCI_VENDOR_ID_PHILIPS,
		.device       = PCI_DEVICE_ID_PHILIPS_SAA7133,
		.subvendor    = 0x1043,
		.subdevice    = 0x4876,
		.driver_data  = SAA7134_BOARD_ASUSTeK_P7131_HYBRID_LNA,

I remember for sure, that this card was fully functional for all use
cases and it was not easy to get it there. I don't have it.

Please provide the "dmesg" for failing auto detection without forcing
some card = number as a starting point.

I for sure want to see this board fully functional again.
