TV tuner pci cards on FC2



I spent most of yesterday afternoon googling for info on supported TV tuner 
cards. From http://www.grosbill.com I found three analog cards within my 
price range.
Card1:
Avermedia AVerTV GO 007 plus/fm plus. This card according to the Avermedia 
site uses the Philips TDA8275 chipset.
http://www.linuxtv.org/v4lwiki/index.php/CARDLIST.saa7134  shows a variant of 
this card, #57 that uses the saa7134 chipset.  
FC2's /lib/modules/2.6.11-0.3.rdt.rhfc2.ccrma/kernel/drivers/media/video has 
a directory with drivers for the saa7134, but the only TDA drivers are:
tda7432.ko, tda9840.ko, tda9875.ko, and tda9887.ko. 

Does anyone know if this card is likely to work if it isn't using the exact 
driver required? 

Card2:
Pinnacle PCTV Analog PCI
Can't find any chipset info on this one from Pinnaclesys site.

Anyone know if this card is supported?

Card3:
Terratec Cinergy 250 PCI
This uses, according to the Terratec site the Philips saa-7134 chipset, but 
isn't specifically listed at the link for saa7134 supported cards above.

Any one knows if this works ok?

Accepting that one of these cards has a suitable driver in the kernel, are 
there additional packages I need to install in order to play TV on the Linux 
box with FC2?

Thanks in advance.

Nigel.
