I have one working with Hoary. It is automatically detected as a bttv driver 
but I had to add a line to my "/etc/modules' file like this............
bttv tuner=27 
To get the tuner to work. I hope yours works without doing this. This is my 
output from " cat /var/log/dmesg |grep bttv"

bttv: driver version 0.9.15 loaded
bttv: using 8 buffers with 2080k (520 pages) each for capture
bttv: Bt8xx card found (0).
bttv0: Bt878 (rev 17) at 0000:00:0e.0, irq: 12, latency: 32, mmio: 
bttv0: detected: Hauppauge WinTV [card=10], PCI subsystem ID is 0070:13eb
bttv0: using: Hauppauge (bt878) [card=10,autodetected]
bttv0: gpio: en=00000000, out=00000000 in=00ffffdb [init]
bttv0: Hauppauge/Voodoo msp34xx: reset line init [5]
bttv0: Hauppauge eeprom: model=44801, tuner=? (-1), radio=no
bttv0: using tuner=27
bttv0: i2c: checking for MSP34xx @ 0x80... not found
bttv0: i2c: checking for TDA9875 @ 0xb0... not found
bttv0: i2c: checking for TDA7432 @ 0x8a... not found
bttv0: i2c: checking for TDA9887 @ 0x86... not found
bttv0: registered device video0
bttv0: registered device vbi0
bttv0: PLL: 28636363 => 35468950 .. ok

Notice the tuner=? line. 
I had to dig though the video4liux driver to find info about the tuner 
settings. this one of for NTSC.
