I don't have any experience with this card, sorry.

In general, only usb devices work with webcamd. AFAIK, no PCI devices work with webcamd.
In general, very few non-usb DVB devices has FreeBSD drivers.

I have a TerraTec Cinergy 1200 DVB-C[1], it didn't have any FreeBSD driver long agao when I tested it, and I haven't seen any driver after that either.
Another card I have is the TechoTrend Premium C-2300 Hybrid[2], also with no FreeBSD driver, AFAIK.
This isn't meant as a complaint, it is just the way things are. Too few eyes and hands I guess.
