Perhaps too late, but I think the Avermedia A301 (mpcie) card might be a candidate if you like a bit of hacking (and are not too literal about the cx25843 being the only
The A301 has a cx25843, but uses a cypress fx2 for (usb) traffic.
I don't believe it has any mpeg encoder chips.
And, it sells for peanuts on ebay (< $10)!
It only uses the usb pins, none of the pcie stuff, and can easily be converted into a "pure usb" card. It also has pcb pads for what probably/possibly is s-video.
(Obviously, it also has an antenna input used for analog/DVB-T signals)
On the downside; no linux driver exist. So unless someone writes one, or are willing to hold my hand if I should try it, the card may not be terribly useful.
Hot chocolate peace!
