tv tuner card for mythtv for laptop


I have Fedora 7 installed on my Dell Inspiron e1505 laptop. I want to install mythtv. I am trying to find a good hd tv tuner card that is compatible with mythtv. I have had no luck with google. Can any body suggest me some inexpensive pcmcia or usb module. Does mythtv work with usb tuner modules?

Thanks.

I have seen this site, but it does not provide any help for a laptop hd tuner card.

The Novell/Suse guy used a hauppauge USB HD Tuner for his demo of Mythtv on his Laptop at Ohio Linuxfest..

said it was $100.00 Theres is a unit on the front of hauppauges site that looks like it.. Check model and cross reference with supported hardware list.

Thanks. There is a usb hd tv tuner on Happauge website but this is for WinTv. It is not clear whether it supports mythtv as well. I have seen the supported hardware list on www.mythtv.org. This tuner is not listed in that list. In fact mythtv.org does not list any usb tuner.
