The nova-t 500 is a PCI card, but has an internal USB bus.

The nova-t 500 doesn't work reliably at my location. An older nova-t  
works very well. The problem is with transmissions where the actual  
transmission frequency doesn't match the frequency in the PAT/PMT  
tables, or if using automatic settings for inversion, qam, hierarchy  
etc. See log below when tuning with w_scan.

The nova-t 500s remote sensor doesn't work yet.

I wouldn't recommend this card for use under linux at the moment.  
It's a hit or miss.
