Philips SAA 7134 problem TV on Suse 9.3


I have a problem with the TV on Suse 9.3. The TV card works perfectly on Windows on the same PC.
I went at Yast which autodetects the card as
SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder
I make the sound test and everything works OK. Then I make a scan and it finds me 10 channels (the windows finds me about 10) and then I press finish.
When I press again on the TV on Yast the following thing is written:
Installed TV and Radio Cards:
SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder
Installed as TV card number 0.
In Suse I have a few programs for watching TV. I tried them all, all of them saved the 10 channels which the Yast found but there is nothing - no picture, no sound, just noise.
During the scan of the channels it makes noise until it finds a channel, then I hear the sound of the chanel for a few seconds then it search another one and the noise continues until it finds a new channel. The problem is that after finding all the channels this noise doesn't stop. I go out of Yast, I save what I did and the noise continues. I restart the PC and the noise is still on. In order to stop the noise I delete the TV card in Yast and it stops. I don't know what to do. Please, anybody can help me?

I don't know if it helps but this is what I receive on these commands:

I reconfigured a few times Yast and made a few restarts and it finally worked - it found all the channels, it has video and audio. The only problem is that the audio doesn't stop, I switch off the program for TV and I still hear the audio from the program. I make restart of the pc and the tv sound appears even on the start of Suse before I go in any profile. It continues no matter in which profile I log in. I can only change the channel or delete the configuration from Yast.
Please, if anybody knows how to stop it? It's a bit stupid to configure it each time I want to watch tv and delete it each time I want to stop it.
