Personally there are 4 reasons:
	#1 My media center PC only has 1 PCI slot... so something doing both HDTV and analog in one card is VERY nice
	#2 The analog is 'free' on the card...  If you have it why not use it...
	#3 Even at Ebay prices the pcHDTV cards are barely twice as much and get you HDTV as well as analog
	#4 The pcHDTV seems to have a slightly nicer analog tuner than the PVR series... images seem to come in better looking

I would LOVE it if someone got the analog + DVB working correctly.

If nothing else having the framework in MythTv would make it easier to integrate other multifunction devices that need crosslocking.
