Hey Emon,

I am in the process of getting a tuner tv card working (which is at the 
moment semi-working) and a DVB-T USB tuner box under ubuntu.

The tuner card was recognized in a fedora box auto magically but not in 
my ubuntu, i loaded the correct module for it (Googled) and then 
installed 'tvtime' package from the ubuntu repositories.  I stuck my 
DVB-T mini antenna into the tv antenna slot and bam it got a few 
channels straight away.

My tuner card is a Lifeview different to yours, but if yours was 
detected, I suggest a Google because it must obviously be supported 
under linux.

Also try the tvtime program, i've found my card won't work in certain 
apps but in others it does.  I've had great success with tvtime.
