If your tuner is not detected correctly (you get a black screen, let's say), try inserting the v4l kernel driver with a tuner parameter, for instance:

modprobe bttv tuner=41

This can also be added to the list of modules loaded on boot, sometimes /etc/modules:

saa7134 card=2 tuner=17 oss=1

If you still don't get a picture, ask for help on the video4linux mailing list.

Technical details

Finally found the home of the TCL tuners. Huizhou in China. The English pages don't respond, so see the product list in Chinese at http://www.tclrf.com/products/m.htm

The TCL2002MB-3 was first discovered on saa7134 cards and recently on cx88 Hauppauge WinTV GO2 models, all use tuner=37 with LG API, the same for TCL2002MI-3 (PAL-I/DK) (cf. http://www.spinics.net/lists/vfl/msg13921.html)

The F variants with radio use the older Philips API, for example tuner=5. The TCL2002MB-1 is supposed to be PAL-BG/DK capable. Don't know if the -3 could indicate any change here, but would not ecpect it, since we have recently also seen the TCL2002MI-3 on a cx88 Hauppauge (cf. http://www.spinics.net/lists/vfl/msg14331.html).

On the other hand the above site shows that we have to be aware of NTSC tuners with tda9885 and also tda9887 with radio like the MFMN05-4 and the full MultiEurope MFPE05-2 (some mismatches on the site).

The WinTV-Express card is a European or UK model, but the Hauppauge WinTV Go Plus looks very much like a PAL-B/G Express 44804 REV D148. Just like this cards, WinTV Express cards in Europe may all be MONO. No MSP34xx...

A new Hauppauge WinTV PCI-FM card is here (pci_ids: 14f1:8800, 14f1:8811), using the TCL MFPE05-02 PAL (DK BG I) FM tuner. There is no known way to make this tuner work with cx88 so far...
