How to get my Asus p7131 tv card working on Suse?

Hi everyone! Ive just bought an Ausus p7131 tv card, but I cannot get it working on my Opensuse. It's working fine on windows 7.
Alright, so first I ran TVcard settings in Yast control panel and it look like this:
Then I pressed the "Edit" button, then TV channels and then scanned for channels and the result was this:
Then I installed mythtv from this tutorial, then scanned for channels in mythtv. It founded something, I'm not sure what, but when I tried to watch TV in Mythtv, the result was this:
Then I installed Xawtv and TVtime, but I'm not able to run both of these apps, it appears black window and it immediately disappears.
I have also tried kaffeine, but it works only with digitaltv, but i have only analogue.

The module mentioned in your picture is saa7134, assuming this is the correct one which it looks like it is then you need to tell the module to use card=78 tuner=54. On my thing you could do this with
# modprobe saa7134 card=78 tuner=54
Do not know if these are the best choices, but they should work. TVTime is usually the easiest thing to get running. Also need module 'tuner' and 'saa7134_alsa' or something like that for the sound. See my entry in the HCL on this site for Peak tv card.


Could also try for Philips Tiger Referrence Design. There will also be a list of tuner numbers somewhere.
