I did not realize that you want to recive analog channels as I did not  
expect a question about analog video in a dvb mailing list.

If you use modprobe the card would be auto detected, so you do not need to  
select a card type.

The gentoo-wiki entry explains how you can use the card with dvb-t. I  
never tried to use the card with analog channels.
