I wouldn't recommend the Lite - the chipset is crap (BT878).
Fusion HDTV (non-Lite)
Ultraview HDTV (non-Lite) (identical to Fusion but a few dollars cheaper)
KWorld Xpert DVB-T PCI
The KWorld is the cheapest - $132 shipped from auspcmarket.com.au.
The hardware doesn't differ much between the three.

I don't know if the analogue inputs are supported, especially not at the
same time as the DVB-T. Certainly the Fusion Lite couldn't do analog and
digital at the same time.

Foxtel analog picture is so awful I wouldn't bother :-(
Or would you be using the SVideo out of the Foxtel Digital STB?
