I use these cards (note: these are PCI) with mythtv:
	Leadtek DTV2000DS PCI Dual HD Digital TV Tuner Card
which I got locally at
So far they work fine. It seems that you do need a relatively recent kernel to ensure that it is stable.

I think that it comes with a low profile bracket but I am not sure (did not need it),
and do not have access to the card right now. Do check this.
