Try the package tvtime:


sudo apt-get tvtime

It should automatically work with most TV cards

If its an analog tv card?

Can you describe your tv device, internal, external, dvb, analog, make, model, serial etc?

Let's see if your card is recognised first, in a terminal type:

lspci -v if tv card is internal, otherwise
lsusb && lsusb -v
You should find your card listed, report that back here.
Also (assuming card does dvb tv) in a terminal type:

dmesg | grep dvb
and report this back
