When you read that the HDTV Wonder was supported, that would be the
cx2388x-based HDTV Wonder, which uses the NXT2004 ATSC/QAM
The card that you have is using ATi's own chipset, which currently
does not have a driver within the v4l/dvb linux kernel subsystems.
It is _not_ likely that the card will work under Linux anytime soon.
I'm sorry to deliver the bad news.
