Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

Looks like you may have to pass a 'tuner=#' option too, isn't cheap noname hardware just so much fun? I used a script to do it quicker.
Here is a slightly modified one that should work with your drivers.
for i in $(seq 0 $MAXTUNER);
rmmod tuner em28xx
modprobe em28xx card=4 tuner=$i
echo "Actual tuner is:" $i
sleep 1 # this is to make sure /dev/video is registered when tvtime starts
