Description of problem:
TV time does not work for my card.
I think it is not good recognized.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
If i start TV-time.
I live in holland (the netherlands) so i select video: pal NC and audio pal bg
if i just start the computer in linux i get no image and only psssss
If i do a reboot after i started tyhe computer in windows XP - the channel i 
selected in XP is visible in black and white ( i think because the video 
selector is off tune) and i have sound.
But i can not select or find any other channel.

Steps to Reproduce:
Actual results:

Expected results:

Additional info:

Its a TV Station Card from KNC ONE (website www.knc1.com or .de)
Its an analog card with a BT878 KHF 25878-12 CA9080 Conexant TV Chip
and 3 other chips
- TDA 9801
- TDA 5787M
- SA 5523
This 3 last chips were very bad readable (brown on black) and made in Thailand

I did find a message in lsmod about a missing eprom
and i think there could be something wrong.
Al the more the card type 0 is i think autodiscover -- must that not be a type 
1-27 ????

File info:

I have copyed only a few lines out lsmod; lspci and dmesg.
I can send the complete output, if you want

=====>>>>>>lsmod shows this:

Yet another forgotten one...

Please let me know if you have problems in some of the recent Fedoras (7, 8). 
If yes, have you tried to use different TV application?
