A newbie question. Can a DVB card ( I understand it decodes MPEG2 digital signal) decode digital cable? Or is it just for free-to-air channels?

Yes, but would it be of any use in the USA?
DVB cards can do digital cable. Sometimes, you need different software / firmware.
With the correct adjustment (LNB) you can ever receive DVB /T without issues.
pyrohydra: Depends what your cable provider follows there in the USA. Some of them follow DVB, so it migh interest you.
For the rest of the world (since North America is just the exception on this) this feature is very neccessary and 100% possible
