I've got a pcHDTV3000 card that gets atsc, which doesn't use the dvb drivers. If I understand you correctly, the cvs 
dvb-kernel drivers now support this card.  And with your patch, mplayer can use it. ( now we use a specially patched 
version of xine - xine-hd).

I'd be happy to test it if this is the sort of setup you have in mind.

But a question: Has this dvb driver been included in recent kernels? I'm using 2.6.10.
