No, I'm not sure of that.  I just googled ES1978 and radio_maesto and found 
this konfig diff on lkml so it looks like it's a kernel issue. My card is a 
Maestro 2E but it has no onboard radio.

Looking at this patch to radio-maestro.c, it again looks like the kernel 
expects to find a radio device on this card.  


While all traces of the card seem to be gone from the Diamond site, I was able 
to find a pdf of the manual on the windows driver install CD.  There is no 
mention of any radio functionality.

Please feel free to reassign or forward this as appropriate.
