Pinnacle PCTV Stereo Tuner problem in slackware12

I have a Pinnacle PCTV Stereo PCI tuner card in my slackware box. Slackware12 automatically detects the card and i have tvtime installed in my system to view tv programmes. when i open tvtime and tune for channel all the channels shows up but with no audio but a high pitch noise from the speakers. earlier it had worked for me but due to hard disk crash i had to re-install slackware12 but after new install the problem started. i can see the error msg "Error inserting I2Ccore" when modprobing saa7134 ie my tuner card. i happens every time i bootup my system. the card works fine in windows and i had tried it with most livecds but didn't work. i had tried with mythtv, xdtv, xawtv but no improvement. my tv system is PAL and country is india. i even tried tvtime-scanner for custom frequency table but all channels are detected and video showsup but audio comes intermittently for a brief time and rest of the time i cud hear only noise. is there any fix for the error inserting I2Ccore.
