I think you might want to specify what *type* of card. I assume you mean video 
capture cards, but you could have meant video (output) cards. If the latter, 
you would need to specify if HDMI is required, or component, or TV out 
(composite or S-Video), or any specific need you might have.

Of course with capture devices it depends on the source of your video. For 
ATSC or QAM, I believe the HDHR is the best. For HD video the HD-PVR is the 
only option (so far).

For analog SD video (NTSC or PAL) the PVR series dominated for a long time, 
but they are no longer available new.

Any card needs to be supported by your underlying OS/distribution before you 
can think about its working with Myth, of course.

The WiKi has information on supported cards, but personal experience and 
anecdotal evidence can be useful.
