I have the following adapters, that work.
ASUS My Cinema U3100 Mini DVBT Tuner (USB)
AverTV DVB-T 777 (PCI)
WinFast DTV-2000H (PCI) - Tuning is a problem on this card
Avermedia Super 007 (PCI) - Tuning is a problem on this card.
I simply use the ASUS or the AverTV DVB-T 777 to do any initial
scanning, as all cards use the same Video Source, once scanned they all
work. The machine that runs the WinFast, I have had to add a 5 second
delay to the backend starting up for it to work reliably with Myth.
I think the only Avermedia Super 007 is still available new, all the
others are long since discontinued. But you can still find the ASUS My
Cinema U3100 on ebay, just make sure it is the white one, the black one
does not work so well (if it works at all, I dont remember which)
