Yes, exactly. I'm looking for a video capture card with the 3.3V notch
(PCI-X compatible) that has available Redhat Linux drivers and is know
to work well with the AGN 2.x software.
What is a recommended?

I think what you are asking for is a PCI 3.3V/5V compatible capture
card, in 
particular a PCI card with the 3.3V notch which will allow to plug into 
PCI-X slot which only supports 3.3V. The WinTV Radio card you describe 
sounds as if it only has the 5V notch.

The Bt878 based Pinnacle TV has a 3.3V notch, there are probably other
based cards out there with the 3.3V notch.
