USB TV Tuner Card

Is there anyone who has one of these and managed to get it working properly? I am building a media pc out of an old laptop, so i can't use any of the pci tv tuner cards. I have searched the net extensively for information on this subject but could find very little useful information. I did find a post somewhere of someone who had success with a Hauppage WinTV Nova USB, but this card is quite expensive (i can only get the sattelite version here).

So if anyone has had positive experience with a USB (prefferably USB2) TV Tuner (especially hauppage products, they are easy to get here), i would like to hear about it. also, the tv tuner i will be buying needs to be supported by the bttv or ivtv driver, since i will be using it with mythtv.
