Unhappy TV Tuner Install


Hello
I have a Dell XPS 210 running ubuntu 7.10
I am trying to get my TV tuner installed so i can watch TV on linux. I have no clue what my TV tuner card's model # or anything is, but this is the output of lspci:

02:00.0 Multimedia controller: ATI Technologies Inc Unknown device 4d53

I have installed a bunch of tv watching software but i don't know how to install the drivers for my tv card. i have tried both:

sudo modprobe saa7134
sudo modprobe bttv

but can't get either to find my card and put it under /dev/video0

so i know im being a little vauge with this because i don't know any thing about my chip, but any help is appreciated

also my pci is mini (or express, i dont remeber the term) so it is smaller than other regular sized ones

thanks

Since it is ATI, look here:

Finding the exact model of card you have would be a big help.
