You didn't say anything about OS version, so here goes:

Pinnacle PCTV pro
(it contains TV + Stereo FM radio)

OS version: 
user at kg-htpc$ uname -a
FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE FreeBSD 4.9-STABLE #4: Sat Apr  3
16:54:21 CEST 2004     root at 

pciconf -lv entries:
bktr0 at pci1:2:0: class=0x040000 card=0x001211bd chip=0x036e109e rev=0x11
hdr=0x00    vendor   = 'Brooktree Corporation'
    device   = 'Bt878 MediaStream Controller'
    class    = multimedia
    subclass = video
none2 at pci1:2:1: class=0x048000 card=0x001211bd chip=0x0878109e rev=0x11
hdr=0x00    vendor   = 'Brooktree Corporation'
    device   = 'Bt878/Fusion878A Video Capture (Audio Section)'
    class    = multimedia

The tuner isn't automatically detected correctly, so I put the following
entries into /etc/sysctl.conf to make the card work:
hw.bt848.format=0       # PAL
Torfinn Ingolfsen,
