Comment 2 for bug 776065

Same problem. Have Pinnacle Systems PCTV 50i PCI card (saa7134 based) that worked on all Ubuntu versions from Hardy through Maverick. Tried to install different frontend CLI and GUI apps (gnomeradio, kradio, ncurses-radio etc to no avail). It looks like the audio part of saa7134 driver works fine (through loud static noise i can hear badly tuned FM stations on some "default" frequency), it is frequency tuning problem (VIDIOCGAUDIO, VIDIOCSFREQ errors are visible in all apps when running from terminal). The issue was solved by downgrading linux kernel from 2.6.38-8 to 2.6.35-22 (had to temporarily change "natty main" to "maverick main" in /etc/apt/sources.list to do that).
