DVB-S works fine in North America -- no problems whatsoever.

If you want digital cable, you will need to go with a card that uses
ATSC.  I don't think VDR has a plugin working for it but I do know that
MythTV does.  Of course, that would only work with unscambled ATSC
digital signals -- which many cable companies provide for their regular
subscription channels.
