I haven't had any success with the USB versions of any tuners, but I do have a Hauppage WinTV card which works perfectly fine with the bktr driver, and has a USB based cousin.

TV viewing software is still less than to be desired in FreeBSD (other than maybe MythTV, but I didn't want to install MySQL and blah), but it's not much worse than the Windows TV viewer from Hauppage. TVTime was the best standalone TV program I've come across right now, but since it uses Video4Linux, I'm sort of stuck using fxtv until either I or someone else ports TVTime to FreeBSD.

Read the bktr manpage for driver requirements in the kernel.
