Tv card "Avermedia difi volar EX" won't work with zenwalk 6.2

I can't find it in /dev/video0 or anywhere else

kernel =
lsusb line = Bus 004 Device 003: ID 07ca:a815 AVerMedia Technologies, Inc.
which means it's there?

i can't find it in lspci

Any ideas on how i might get it to work

hi i have avermedia cardbus pcmci tvtuner
in general you need card detected/setup by kernel and v4l
i use mplayer to test s-vide on my card by command
mplayer -tv driver=v4l:width=640:height=480utfmt=i420 -vc rawi420 -vo xv tv://
also try to install mythTV and configure card.
