Make sure you have the latest version of v4l-dvb. You can use the tutorial found at http://www.linuxtv.org/repo/

To get this card to work in NTSC_M, create the following file

File: /etc/modprobe.d/saa7134

options saa7134 card=42 tuner=17

[Note: Some newer card variants need 'tuner=69' or 'tuner=43' instead of 'tuner=17']

Options: Cards supported by your kernel are available in the files

Card list - /usr/src/linux/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.saa7134 
Tuner list - /usr/src/linux/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.tuner

Then reload the driver by typing

rmmod saa7134
modprobe saa7134


You can now run a program such as tvtime [or xawtv or kdetv or motv] to view your television channels:

tvtime

If you get a scrambled picture make sure that you have module tda9887 loaded

modprobe tda9887

Enjoy!
