DVB-T needs small modification and firmware: in /usr/src/linux/drivers/media/video/saa7134/saa7134-dvb.c line 890 (2.6.21-r4), struct tda1004x_config phillips_tiger_config, change the entry:

Code: saa7134-dvb.c
  .request_firmware = NULL


Code: saa7134-dvb.c
  .request_firmware = phillips_tda1004x_request_firmware


/usr/src/linux/Documentation/dvb/get_dvb_firmware tda10046

and copy the dvb-fe-tda10046.fw to /lib/firmware, then load the module:

modprobe saa7134-dvb
