I have the exact same card without the radio. Mine works fine, except I 
use the line in on my sound card. (have no idea how you even got audio 
out of the card without this)

What I had to do is create a file in /etc/modprobe.d and called it bttv 
with the following:

options bttv card=10 tuner=27

Look at the bttv howto to get the options for the radio part.
Hope this helps some.
