Check out the project page:
looks like ivyTV cards are supported.

what mpeg decoder cards with 4 outputs from the same machine are you refering to? I will need to get something like that for an installation, but don't really know much about it.
Check out Jaromil's ivysync, which uses those mpeg decoder cards for synced output. I think you can do 4 outputs from the same machine, but I'm not sure if that is a software limit, or just the number of slots available for those cards. Jaromil did mention something about a network sync feature also.
As far as I know these decoders are all only 640x480, I imagine the ones working on linux certainly are.
