I can highly recommend the Visionplus DVB-t. The Excel card is based
on it (apparently).
any of the kernels after 2.6.4 have support for it but it may require
some additional  work such as the stuff Paul mentioned (but that seems
to be standard)

The output quality is awesome but i have found that stretching some of
 buffers in players helps smooth out some problems with small cpu's

I picked one up at the markets for $110 and never looked back

That which does not kill you has made a tactical error.
