 I just got this card as it has a digital tuner.
Comcast decided to shift channels 30-70 to digital.

Anyway this tuner does not work yet in F10.

"unable to grab video

Video display is not possible with the current plugin configuration. Try playing with the configuration options of the V4L2 plugin."

Any ideas?

Actually, one issue is that the display program may have selected the wrong card to use, if you have a bunch of /dev/videoX devices, use the option to select the input device. You may find that you have multiple dsp devices as well, it's been a while since I looked at these cards.
