This *may* help.....

I did my own research way back when.  I first found out what I could
about TV cards in general.  I found what chipsets were used most often. 
I then looked in /lib/modules/`uname -r`/kernel/drivers/media/video to
see what modules were there and what chipsets were represented.

At that time the best supported chipsets that were also easy to obtain
in Taiwan were Bt8XX.  So, I went out and bought that and everything
worked just fine.  I still use that in my RHELv4 system with xdtv.

The info is out there.  It may not exist on this list.  :-)
