What are settings for Zappa TV/Radio card cant find them

I have been googling a bit and from what I have read it appears that the reason that my xawtv is only showing fuzz is that my tuner isnt set up right. The only problem is that I couldnt exactly what I need to set and what the settings are. I belive that I need to change the card= in my etc/modules.conf file.

Anyone know what I should set it to? I have a Zaapa Tv/Radio tuner card the only numbers I could find on the card were ZATV878RF and it has conexant written on one of the chips, NO FCC I couldnt find any info on this card googling
