THE pcHDTV HD-5500 (and the earlier HD-3000 version also I think) card
does - it has an HDTV-capable tuner and also S-Video and audio inputs
for analogue capture. pcHDVT is also a very Linux-friendly company.

Note that the Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-1600 hybrid card also offers this
capability, but is not yet fully supported (and may never be) on
