Did you include support for the Pixelview TV tuner when you compiled the kernel?

You'll wanna build the support as modules so you can run:
modprobe card=WX radio=YZ

Install TVTime and xawtv (I'd recommend using TVTime, but you'll want the --scan functions from xawtv).

There's less hope out there for the bt8x8 based chips.
I never fully got mine working.
I bought one of the DSE TV-Tuners for about $79, and it worked fine out of the box with my (at the time) 2.6.0-r1 kernel (This Tuner is based on the Philips Saa7134 chipset).

If you've just bought the card recently and have little joy with it, you _should_ be able to return it.

Hope this helps


Chill.
