 Unfortunately I do have/find the box. But I am very sure, that I have PAL
 support (it is a card sold for the germ. market). But maybe the tuner is able
 to handle SECAM, too; I cannot say...

 So your patches make the bktr driver functionable?

 Oh. Ok... Maybe you really have a Philips tuner. Especially if you can use the
 card now, it looks like a Brooktree compatible tuner.

 I think Pinnacle uses two different vendor IDs (maybe they where afraid, that
 they will have too many models for just one vendor ID... ;-)) ).
 I tried the original files (from webCVS) and applied just your patches. This
 did not work in my system, so our tuners seem to be different...
