what distro and kernel are you using, latest 2.6.13 kernels should have
full support for this card
I am using this under suse 10.0 and the system just picks it up.
Mythtv (0.18) just finds it and I can do a scan, but you need to put a
starting frequency into the the frequency table
the first time you scan.
