Tv-tuner Pinnacle 110i installation

I bought Pinnacle 110i tv-tuner, but I have no ideas how to make it
work? Also I don't know what is right: on the board it's written
SAA7131E chip, and all installation instructions are for SAA7133? Should
I install it in the same way?
Does anyone installed this or same Pinnacle tv-tuner cards?
Great thanks for any suggestions.
P.S. I'm using FC4

I think the installation procedures are quite just the same, even if the instructions are for SAA7133 and the chip tells it's SAA7131E. They seem to be almost the same, so the instructions should go ahead

I'm sorry if I cannot help you in more detail, because I have no TV-tuner myself. But if you're using Fedora Core 4, it should do some automatical things when you plug the device in (and hey, you had some installation instructions, that's a good thing!), and if it does not (and you're completely out of ideas), try rebooting the machine since that's when FC4 will surely check for new hardware and try to probe it and load some drivers.

But yes, first try following the instructions you have - should you run into troubles, ask here
