Yes. Typo. It's a PC150-U.

I found the digital decoder. It's a Samsung s5h1411.

Unfortunately no saa7134 card uses s5h1411, so I'm trying to copy come
code from a saa7164 card. But my C coding skills are very very

I currently trying to play around with these (copied from a saa7164
card!). I don't know if I'm in the right direction or not!

static struct s5h1411_config kworld_s5h1411_config = {
        .output_mode   = S5H1411_SERIAL_OUTPUT,
        .gpio          = S5H1411_GPIO_ON,
        .qam_if        = S5H1411_IF_4000,
        .vsb_if        = S5H1411_IF_3250,
        .inversion     = S5H1411_INVERSION_ON,
        .status_mode   = S5H1411_DEMODLOCKING,
