A very nice tv app is 'tvtime', it's probably included in het redhat distro. I don't know if your tuner card is supported in Linux though. Best just to give it a try

Have fun

TvTime says: Cannot Capture Device /dev/video0

As it happens, RH9 is about 5 versions old; I'd strongly recommend upgrading/replacing with RH Fedora Core 5. Much more likely to support things like tv cards.
