Can't comment on DVB-S card, but I just installed a DVB-T card on 
KnoppMyth and during the install (when it says 'no cards found') I had to -
login as root
type in "modprobe dvb-bt8xx" without the quotes, yours may be different...
type in "echo dvb-bt8xx >> /etc/modules" to add it to the modules list...
then ctrl+alt+F7 to get back to the setup window
Where flicking through the types of cards  again, it showed up... :)

The drivers are all there but can't all be installed by default, so a 
bit of fine tuning is called for...
