thanks for the tip. 

I actually solved the problem yesterday.

its due to  a problem described in the following thread.

Some problem with /sbin/udevsend..

I applied the workaround..

Change the
"        echo /sbin/udevsend > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug" entry
in /etc/init.d/udev script to
" echo /sbin/hotplug > /proc/sys/kernel/hotplug"

After that coldplugging  the plextor usb tuner works on Mandriva LE2005.

After making that change, for some reason, ALSA doesn't load my sound
card modules..  so i get no sound. I manually added "modprobe
sound-slot-0" to my rc.local script to make it all work now.

I'm happy now :)
