I know for a fact Hauppage WinPVR-350/250/150 work like a charm. -my 
PVR-350(fast with hardware decoding/encoding) works great, along with the 
Myth-TV port in (latest)FreeBSD-6.2-Stable.
-some of the newer PVR-x50's may have a weiro Tuner but they should work, 
needless check all the recent posts on this feed in regards.

The above (Hauppage PVR's) are basically cable/antennae ready "analog" based 
NTSC/Pal/... tuners, I'm not sure about HD/Digital-Tuners right now?, but 
again, go through the (recent) posts here (multimedia)regarding 
updateds/changes for the "pvrxxx" drivers that the devels have worked on
