This particular card exists in two varieties - if you have the "super hybrid" version you are out of luck - there is "experimental" support for the "hybrid" variant.

To get this card to work you'll need to grab to extract the firmware from a Windows DLL - see this wiki page for further information.

I couldnt myself find the firmware from the link - you might have to grab the dll from your windows card install disk and extract it using the perl script described on the wiki.

Once you've got the firmware, save it as /lib/firmware/dvb-fe-tda10046.fw

If you are lucky, after a reboot your card should be recognised.

This wiki page is dated Jan 2010 - if however, the "experimental" support hasnt yet made it into the Natty kernel, you need to download drivers from the linked repositories and compile & install them yourself.

This is probably correct –  Amith KK Jul 31 '11 at 16:02

This is a daring claim, but the drivers to my TV adaptor where in the nonfree package:

sudo apt-get install linux-firmware-nonfree
