I've been working on getting this card working on and off for over a month now and I've made very little progress. I tried to follow the instructions that came with the card to get it working with the kernel. After I successfully compiled and installed the drivers I am seeing this in my dmesg output:

I've tried this with the and kernels and got the same results.

Looking at this output I notice two things:
1. The module has support for my card (listed as card=47).
2. The card's subsystem is listed as 1554:4943

After snooping around on the Internet and looking at the source code for the driver I found out that the subsystem ID for this card should be 7063:5500. As a test I modified the driver souce to search for the ID that my card reports and it was detected immediately after I rebooted. But, dtvdignal could not find a signal on any of the channels I tried.

Has anyone run into this problem before?

Yes, if the PCI IDs are wrong, your card has a problem and beyond that all bets are off about getting things to work. e-mail support@pchdtv.com and they can make arrangements to swap your card with a working one.
