[SATLUG] Neep help setting up an internal TV Card

Hi everyone

I am running openSUSE-11.3(x64) with KDE desktop & all updates installed
as of today (19-Jan-11).

Kernel name/version: "Desktop -- openSUSE 11.3 - 2.6.34.7-0.7"

Over here at Dhaka/Bangladesh we get analog cable tv & transmission
format is PAL.

I recently changed my tv card from Avermedia 'Avertv Super 700' to
Kworld 'PCI Analog TV Card Lite PVR-TV 7134SE'.... at least that's what
the label on the packaging says :-)

I have been trying to take help by following instructions from these two
sites

http://linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Kworld_PCI_Analog_TV_Card_Lite

http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/SAA7134

But I can't figure out what exactly my card/tuner number should be :-(

I mean my "exact card name" is not listed in the following file

/usr/src/linux/Documentation/video4linux/CARDLIST.saa7134

so I can't figure the tuner number from the second website either :-(

So on a hunch I put card=153 & tuner=43 and the card seems to be working
fine!! except for one or two channels.

But surely this is not the way to do things.... there must be a more
accurate way... may be I am missing/not understanding something.

So... a little help would be much appreciated :-)

Thanks in advance
Emon
