 Hi Arne,

 Could you read the stick on your Pinnacle retail box (if you still have 
 this one) ? Mine says :
    PCTVrave PAL - BG/SECAM Retail F/I/E
                      ^^^^^        ^ ^ ^
                       [1]        [2]
 I'm note sure, and I will try your patch in the next days, but my card 
 seems to be a localized version, supporting SECAM [3] (a video standard 
 common to France and former USSR), and distributed only in France, Italy 
 and Spain.
 So, it would not be surprizing to have two differents tuners (at least) 
 on the market (the Phillips Tuner seems to support SECAM, in the bktr 
 driver code source) and I think that "turning off the warning" is 
 enough, because the code is already wrote :)
 Applying my patch (kern/73324) is easy, because I suggest that the 
 original Pinnacle vendor ID is false (0x11BD and not 0xBD11, as you 
 already had found). So, just turn it to 11BD from the current CVS tree, 
 and watches the results at boot, I would be interesting.
