Okay, so I found out what the TV Tuner is, FINALLY!! Thanks in part to google and a chinese website and subsequently another google search and a usenet group.
Anywho, now I need to find the next closest supported tuner or possibly this one if it is a choice and reonfigure the kernel w/ this one. Wish me luck, for I know I will.
BTW, for the curious the Tuner is made by some company called Tenna Electronics. I think the link in the title will lead to their website. I hope this works and I can start watching TV in Linux. Not that I can hook it up to a cable connection right now, but that doesn't matter.
