OK, So your card should work, just not out of the box.
I just google "SAA7130 linux driver" and did a little google-fu.
I found this from a Ubuntu forum....http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=948180
and this from a Gentoo forum...http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/SAA7134#tuner
Then I locked in on this answer here...

infact Philips SAA7130 is a scale down version of SAA7134 for which linux driver is available.
i mean, you need to load the saa7134 module like:
I am already using a SAA7130 based tuner for viewing TV.
here i documented how you can do that.http://jobinau.googlepages.com/saa71...cardunderlinux
You will likely need to download and install the nxt2004 firmware for one of these cards, and you'll also likely need to specify the card and tuner parameters as modprobe options, since most of these cards are so cheaply produced that modprobe has trouble identifying one from another. Once they are configured, however, they work great.
The mythtv howto for the Avermedia A180 tells how to get the firmware for these cards.http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/AVerTV_HD_A180
The list of cards is most easily found on the Gentoo wiki:http://en.gentoo-wiki.com/wiki/Saa7134
The list of tuners is found here:http://www.gentoo-wiki.info/SAA7134#tuner
So that, for example,to load my AverMedia A180 properly via modprobe, the command was;
modprobe saa7134 card=75 tuner=68
And finally, though this doesn't usually affect Ubuntu, it's hardly documented anywhere: if your I2c support is compiled straight into the kernel, the nxt-2004 firmware absolutely, positively will not load. I2c support must be done as a module.
Like I said, not usually a problem with Ubuntu, unless you've done some peculiar kernel compiling. But in some distros it will stop you dead with one of these cards until you figure it out.
Seems no one here uses the same card as you, but that does not mean that the answer can't be found on another forum were someone does.
Read through the above, the steps should be very much the same. Ask questions about specific steps, if they give you trouble, I 'll try to help where I can, if I can.
