Well the majority of analogue tuner cards have at least composite video 
input and some have S-Video so chances are you can plug in a Freeview 
box assuming the box itself has composite video output (which is usually 
the case).  Some (although not all) Freeview boxes also have RF modules 
in them so they can output an RF signal (a bit like a VCR does).  If all 
else fails, a Freeview box plugged in via SCART to an old VCR which is 
in turn plugged into the TV tuner via RF would probably work.
