DVB-S card is for receiving digital signal from satellite, DVB-T is for receiving digital signal from terrestrial transmitter and DVB-C is for receiving digital signal from cable. VDR can also use analogue cards. It is also possible to receive signal with VDR server and stream it to the client. DVB-C2, DVB-T2 and DVB-S2 tuner devices basicly mean devices capable of receiving HD content.
There are many of kind tuner cards to choose from. There are PCI, PCI-e and USB cards available. V4L-DVB Wiki has a list of devices at http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/Hardware_Device_Information
