    problems with my tv card (saa7130)

    I can get my saa7130 phillips tv card to work in my mandriva 2007 spring.
    When i run dmesg |grep saa, this is what I get.

    saa7134: Congratulations! Your TV card vendor saved a few

    Yes, TV cards are difficult to configure (although some people report having no problems). I think it depends on the chipset your card is using, and whether or not Mandriva supports this.

    You can get situations where the same 2 cards have slightly different chipsets; this makes it hard to get agreement between people over how to fix certain problems.

    A good place to start is a guide like this. You might get lucky.

    This might also help, though it's not about your card. Good luck!

    this is the best i could find. it is on the gentoo site, but is a generic workaround. HARDWARE saa7134 - Gentoo Linux Wiki good luck.

    Finally got it working

    It took almost 1 year search for solution.
    finally i got it working perfectly and i verified in different distirbutions also.
    documented the same here.
