IME tvcards are very easy to use with Redhat/Fedora, since they have the 
driver for the Bt878 chipset built into the kernel. If you can try to get one 
on that chipset.

I have a Hauppauge WinTv from about 5 years ago, just plugged it in, installed 
the tv viewer and worked right away.

IMO the best viewer is tvtime becuase of the deinterlacing, the quality of the 
picture is superb, far better than the software that comes with any tvcard.
