I've done this very thing - I have a AVerMedia DVB-T and a TwinHan 
VisionPlus or something like that.  You have to get the 
/dev/dvb/adapter{0,1,2,3}/* devices working with the appropriate major and 
minor numbers for MythTV to work with the cards correctly.  Contact me on- 
or off-list for how to get it working in MythTV.

I, conversely, have had enormous problems getting the analogue TV card I 
had in there to work - I couldn't work out what values to plug in and the 
values that I tried produced nothing but static.

I can thoroughly recommend http://www.wilsonet.com/mythtv as a resource for 
setting up MythTV in all scenarios.
