    TV Tuner Card detection and configuration

    How do I check what TV Tuner Card I have in my desktop and more important what program do I use to watch and record TV shows?
    I have Ubuntu 8.04 installed on my Dell Inspiron 530 PC.
    Thank you in advance!

    Can't help on the naming of your card part, but mythtv is an amazingly powerful tivo replacement. I'd be willing to help you through the install process, but if your card is gonna work without tweaking, mythtv can fulfill all your tv watching needs.

    Also, a quick check to see if your card works is tvtime

    Code:
    sudo apt-get install tvtime

    Installed TVTime. Says: "No Signal". Looks like my card is not supported by Ubuntu
    If I install a different TV Tuner Card, do I need to reinstall Ubuntu?
