Yes, his logs appear to be missing the following....

[4294691.875000] DVB: registering new adapter (bttv0).
[4294691.879000] DVB: registering frontend 0 (Zarlink MT352 DVB-T)...

He probably needs to:-

modprobe dvb-bt8xx
modprobe mt352

Test the card by installing:-

apt-get install dvb-utils
apt-get install xine

scan /usr/share/doc/dvb-utils/examples/scan/dvb-t/"COUNTRY_CITY" | tee ~/.xine/channels.conf

He should now be able to view live tv through xine.
(NOTE: "COUNTRY_CITY" the dvb-t directory for the correct country code and city)
