When you say, "I cannot make it work", what exactly do you mean?

Could you do some simple diagnostics, and send the output
to the list:

uname -a

lspci -v

the output of dmesg, starting immediately
after the Hard Disk discovery statements.


Have you tried to scan any multiplexes, and what kind 
of results are you seeing?

How is the card wired up, physically?

What other kind of diagnostics have you done to verify
that the card is not functional? (Have you tried it in a 
MicroShaft Winblows machine to make sure the card itself
is functional?)

It's hard to diagnose problems without some more info
as to what might be wrong...

I have a DViCO FusionHDTV5 Lite in my AMD64 Stable box,
along with several other cards (PVR-150, 
Avermedia A180 QAM, Air2PC SkyStar2 ATSC).  I am 
running a 2.6.24 kernel from etch-and-half, but all 
my cards are functional, and play together well.
