Try modprobe -r bttv and modprobe -r tuner then for my TV2000XP Deluxe I would 
use modprobe bttv card=34 tuner=2 you would need to find the correct card= 
number for your card. I use the following in a file I 
created /etc/modprobe.d/tvcard.

## Added by me for proper detection of tuner for TV card
options bttv card=34 tuner=2

The loads the bttv module with the correct tuner and card on boot.
