After some quick research, Video4Linux (v4l) supports the SAA7133/34
tuner chip (http://linux.bytesex.org/v4l2/drivers.html), and according
to the site it's built-in the 2.6.x family of kernels.
Found this site, with actual close-ups of the card. Appears that the
chip is actually a Philips 7174. Similar/same as SAA7133/34??
Also, it appears that eVga carries a nice assortment of the Nvidia
Personal Cinema. Their specs claim that the chip is a Philips SAA7133/34.
In theory, linux does support this card...
Now, would that RF remote be a problem...?
