Have you looked at the HCL under Video Devices ? - personally I'd go with anything BT878, I have a Hauppauge card with that chip and have had no problems under either Linux or Win32

I have a saa7134-based Pinnacle PCTV Stereo TV card, and it works perfectly.
But I'm not sure it works with Mdk10 default kernels, because I only tried 2.6.6 and 2.6.7 kernels on my Mandrake10.
