Which kernel module you use and which parameters you use? I'm using this 
# cat /etc/modprobe.d/saa7134
options saa7134 i2c_scan=1 card=94 tuner=54

I'm assuming you are speaking about dvb-t signal.

No, I use it with portable antenna and I have good signal. I only has 
problem to get this card working with distribution kernel. When I 
compile my own and included firmware it start working and I have no 
problem since then.
