Here is what I found to do.
In your "etc/modprobe.conf" at the end of the page ad these two lines

options i2c-algo-bit bit_test=1
options saa7134 card=3 tuner=37

The first tells the kernel to look at the card again ( It doesn't always get the card quite )
The next line tells the kernel just what the card is and how to use it.
Now in your "etc/X11/xorg.conf"
At the end of your
Section "Module" add this line

Load "v4l"

Now save and reboot
PS
If you are going to record something you might want to yum xdTV "Get there resource from ( http://xawdecode.sourceforge.net/htmlpageU...S/indexUS.shtml Home page.)

Please parden me if I type the way I talk.
If you have any feed back please E-mail me at [removed by DS2K3]
