Ummm, so when you had problems with the SCSI and Tuner did you get any
error messages in dmesg?  Cause I currently don't have any in mine, as
far as I can tell the kernel is recognizing it just fine.

To answer a prior question as to what card it was.

bktr0: <BrookTree 848A> mem 0xdddff000-0xdddfffff irq 19 at device 11.0 on pci0
bktr0: Hauppauge Model 56101 E M2
bktr0: Hauppauge WinCast/TV, Philips NTSC tuner.

This seems to be a damn old card.  And appears to work well with
Ubuntu.  Somewhat shotty under Freesbie  I
think that CD based one was using 5.2 though, not to mention It
doesn't seem to appear quite as well, perhaps there's a way to mount
swap that i'm unaware about.  Thanks for the advice.
