There's lots of options.

MythTV doesn't take anything away, but if you want to keep what you've
already got you'll need to split the analog input (aerial lead) so
that you can feed it into your DVB card,  and you'll need a spare
input to your TV, to connect the Myth box to.

You'll probably use a cable that merges the TV Out of your graphics
card, and the line out of your audio card into a SCART connector
(either composite or S-Video)  That's how my setup works in the UK.

Good Luck
