Which TV cards do send the audio data via PCI?

I'm thinking about bying a TV card. It must support PAL and and should handle 
stereo sound. There seam to be different ways how the audio data gets into 
the PC. Most cards use a cable to the sound card. But that blocks the only 
line in input. Now I read that some cards send the audio data via the PCI bus 
to the bktr driver. That sound much more elegant. But which cards work thar 
way? And how does FreeBSD the that data. Does a second mixer appear?

Thank you.
