My only analogue TV-card experience is with the Hauppauge PVR-350 which 
is a very good card and the ivtv drivers are mature.

If you have a DVB-T broadcast antenna relatively close-by then a Nova 
T500 should work fine. If you scan this mailing list you will find the 
this card might be problematic in bad weather conditions and or if the 
reception is bad in general. I'm living about 1.5km away from the 
sender, so I think I cannot comment on that.

Look at the linux-dvb Wiki and look if the card of your choise is listed
