I am thinking not, but I don't know what to do about it.  I am running Fedora 7.  I found this:


According to this, the card type should be 75, but it is being autodetected as 0 (generic).  That's probably
the problem, but again, I don't know what to do about it.  I tried "/sbin/modprobe saa7134-dvb card=75" but 
fedora's modprobe doesn't understand that extra "card=" parameter.
