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.
tristate "Maestro on board radio"
- depends on VIDEO_V4L1
+ depends on (VIDEO_V4L1 || VIDEO_V4L1_COMPAT)
Say Y here to directly support the on-board radio tuner on the
Maestro 2 or 2E sound card.

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.
