Alfa digital cards are working with recent kernel and ivtv based too, old bt787 driver based cards sucks .i've tried Asus also and it worked fine ,make sure that you have Philps sa713xx tv tuner chip on pci tv card . better use ubuntu 12. old wintv card use bt787 drivers don't use them ,newest cards from Hauppauge are well supported under ivtv video framework. try to use v4l2 based tv ap .

which distro you are running on ?
http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Kworld_PCI_Analog_TV_Card_Lite

Code: Select all

sudo modprobe saa7134 card=63 tuner=43

play with card=xx and tuner=xxx , some settings will suit to your card , its kinda tricky to run TV cards on linux and i wish you good luck . i try to buy used tv cards which are already tested by linux users .
