You should be able to just plug the tuner in and it should just work.

What capture device type are you selecting? A tip it should be dvb.

Also check what rights do you have for your /dev/dvb device?
for me:-

ls /dev/dvb/adapter0 -o -a

in U9 it works plug and play in kaffeine
i'm from Flanders (Belgium), so it works good, so lang as i get good reception, if the reception goos bad, the OS crashes
very weird, but i've mounted my antenna in a good place, so no problems :)
