The kernel modules you need are present, so there is good chances it will work. I found this article on the subject

Thank you. Now, is there any software for Linux that will allow me to record TV programs?

After using Vector Linux 7.0 for a few days (or rather trying to use it) I have come to the conclusion, based on my experience with it, that it is definitely NOT worth using as of yet, so I am going to try version 6.0in the hopes that it will be worth it. For that reason, I now want to know: Is Version 6.0 is compatible with my SAA-7130 TV tuner card?

Locator, in answer to your previous question, you might try MythTV. And just curious here, what made you decide that version 7 isn't worth using yet?

I thought that there were a lot of bugs in it, but then I come to find out - much to my own chagrin - that the "test computer" that I was using is not compatible with it. Anyway, thank you for the information.
