Interesting.  I certainly could be wrong, but I'm wondering if the 
person you were talking to at BBTI was just confused.  To the best of my 
knowledge, there are only:

- the original Broadcom based cards, packaged as r0.2  ... this is the 
one that you bought from them off ebay (saw your message on gossamer), 
as advertised on BBTI's website, and found at 
http://cgi.ebay.com/NEW-Air2PC-ATSC-Digital-HDTV-Tuner-PCI-Card_W0QQitemZ5240088713QQcategoryZ3761QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

- the Nxt2002 based cards I have always seen referred to as r2.0 (and I 
myself am quite guilty to referring to them as that -- should I be 
wrong).  The verbose from "lspci -vn" should also refer to it as rev02  
... card pictured at http://www.bbti.us/products_air2pc_atsc_pci.htm

- and now the new LG DT3303 based cards (aka Airstar HD5000), as shown 
here http://www.bbti.us/products_airstar_hd5000_pci.htm

Perhaps there was a r0.1 Broadcom based card?  Anyway, their 
nomenclature is definitely inconsistent to say the least :-P
