Well, for digital cable there's a card that's puported to handle QAM (no 
Linux drivers, though), but that's only good for unencrypted content, 

Also for cable or satellite, there's a slim possibility that you could 
get a digital stream over FireWire from a set-top box with a FireWire 
port, but in the US (maybe not now, but definitely after July) that 
would probably be limited to 480p or thereabouts.
