they do make Dish compatible tuner cards. If your plan is to do illegal things 
with Dish then don't worry about getting the card reader. If you plan on 
using an actual Dish subscription get one with a card reader, but I don't 
know if there is support for this in linux, you'd have to look around.

As well, you won't get any HD channels with the PC tuner cards and when they 
do the switch to MPEG4 you won't be able to tune those channels either.
