Hi - I sympathise with you. I tried this a while back and didn't manage to get my TV card working. Rather than make this a long post it might be worth reading this. In theory it should be possible to get a tv card with Bt848 and Bt878 chipsets working with few problems. In practice, I think it's more difficult than that.
Please let us all know how you get on. If you can get a tv card working then you've done well.I am always doing that which I can not do, in order that I may learn how to do it. - Pablo Picasso
