Ok, I was mainly interrested in adding the ntsc (analog) tuning. I think 
most if not all the ntsc channels left in our area are spanish, so not 
really interrested in watching them, more, in, I have the hardware, 
would be nice if it was usable. I have both these cards:


And I just noticed the second card is also listed as having analog tuning:

But according to this link, only the 1800 has linux support for analog:

With both cards in, I have 3 dvb adapters and all 3 have:
demux0, dvr0, frontend0, net0
