There is Jason's cx88 driver (in ports), which supports several cards,
some support ATSC, some support DVB, some support NTSC.
There is John-Mark's driver for the DViCO FusionHDTV5.
Not a "card" but the HDHomeRun is a small box with 2 ATSC/QAM tuners
that connects to 100 Mbps or faster Ethernet. The HDHR has no analog
tuner capability. There is a DVB version in the works, I don't know
what the status is. The HDHR doesn't require a special device driver
in the kernel, just Ethernet.
