TV tuner

Does anyone have a suggestion on a HDTV tuner? I have been looking at some but they all seem to have their flaws. I would like to be able to record from my antenna and cable. I'm willing to spend a $100 to $150.

Any suggestions?

Thank you!

I would go check out the MythTV wiki hardware section and see if there's anything there that grabs your attention.

The following link lists a handful of ATSC or HDTV cards.

I suggest KWorld ATSC 110 because it comes with a better video capture chip than the cheapest HDTV cards. The cards based on Conexant chips (BT878, CX23882, CX23883) are grainy.
