Oct 27 23:57:44 zathrus kernel: bttv0: using: BT848A( *** UNKNOWN/GENERIC **) 
Oct 27 23:57:44 zathrus kernel: tuner: chip found @ 0xc2
Oct 27 23:57:44 zathrus kernel: bttv0: i2c attach [client=(unset),ok]
Oct 27 23:57:44 zathrus kernel: i2c-core.o: client [(unset)] registered to 
adapter [bt848 #0](pos. 0).

Even with card=6 type=5, I get

Oct 28 00:02:08 zathrus drakxtv[22626]: launched command: xvt -T 'Scanning 
for TV channels ...' -e scantv -n NTSC -f canada-cable -o 
Oct 28 00:02:08 zathrus kernel: tuner: tuner type not set
Oct 28 00:02:38 zathrus last message repeated 126 times

I've tried a bunch of other combinations too.
