SuSe 9.2 KdeTV unable to grab video

When I use the SuSe 9.1 I can watch TV in KwinTV although I cannot set the Nicam. But when I Suse 9.2, I cannot use the KdeTV to watch TV, the device setting for video is Proteus Pro (philips reference Video4Linux (/dev/video0), after scanning the channels,
I have the following message:

Unable to grab video.
Video display is not possible with the current plugin configuration. Try playing with the configuration options of the V4L plugin.

No picture can be seen, but I can hear the sound and the TV stations are tuned.
My tunner card is Philips saa7134 based and the tuner is also Philips.
My VGA Card is geForce 5200.

What can I do? Thanks for any advice.
