Review of Linux Compatibility

Several (often low-cost) PCI TV tuner cards exist, which base on the SAA7130 chipset. These cards have the PCI ID 1131:7130 but differ in their subsystem ID, e.g. 1131:2342 for the Norwood Micro PCI TV Tuner PRO Card:

02:09.0 Multimedia controller: Philips Semiconductors SAA7130 Video Broadcast Decoder (rev 01)
	Subsystem: Philips Semiconductors: Unknown device 2342
	Flags: bus master, medium devsel, latency 32, IRQ 5
	Memory at fb005000 (32-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=1K]

The subsystem ID can be found under

02:09.0 Class 0480: 1131:7130 (rev 01)
        Subsystem: 1131:2342
