I have the same card, nothing special to setup. My old Flyvideo98/FM 
used the bttv module but the newer ones use this saa7134 module.

If it is not already in your /etc/modprobe.conf then you need the 
following line.

alias char-major-81 saa7134

I left it auto-detect the card & tuner and everything works just fine. 
Uee tvtime to watch TV without a hitch.

PS. /etc/modules.conf was used by the 2.4 kernels, you can remove that 
if you only use 2.6.
