Which "Expresscard TV Tuner"?? (please).... HP, Leadtech Winfast, 
Avermedia, Pinnacle, Startech... there are a few manufacturers that 
release a product labelled "Expresscard".
You say the module is not in Ubuntu?? (so "/sudo updatedb; sudo locate 
hcihp/" yields nothing??).
I don't have a running Ubuntu beside me at present... but I seem to 
remember the module being present.... will have a look when I get back 
to the workshop this evening.
Have you tried "/sudo mpdprobe hcihp/"????
Any chipset/board ids, /lspci/, /dmesg/, and /lsmod/ output would be 

If it breaks - you get to keep both pieces
