Yes, analog cable from Ziggo, that's normal in Groningen, Netherlands.

Yes, I first try to use channels like "5" for Nederland 1. Now I am
using frequencies like "175.25", but this does not work too.

What do you mean with E5 and E12?  I tried E5, but it did not work.

I am not sure my Hauppauge PVR-150 works fine. I am using kernel 2.6.26
so I expect all drivers are there. The module ivtv is not automatically
loaded. ivtv-utils are installed. How can I test the TV-card?
