Fedora Code 3 comes with 'tvtime'.

Gnomeradio will work just fine. I use the gkrellm radio plugin.

You need to load the correct module (driver). In your case it is called
'bttv'. Put the following in your /etc/modprobe.conf and then run
'depmod -ae'

alias char-major-81 bttv
options bttv card=56 tuner=1 pll=1 radio=1

NOTE: I have a FlyVideo 98FM (card=56) with PAL-I (tuner=1). You will
need to change to suit your card.

Load the module with 'modprobe bttv' and you are off.
