If you don't care about HDTV at this point in time, just buy a PVR-250 or
PVR-500 (dual input). Even if you *do* care about HDTV, buy one of the
above, which you can use with SDTV channels anyhow. These are the most
stable (driver wise) of Hauppauge's products under Linux, as they've been
around for many a year.
Hauppauge has a new device:
that will have full support for Linux, and will suffice for capturing
HDTV from any source, but if you don't like to hack with new / untested
hardware, wait a few months / a year to look at it seriously.
By then, needed drivers will be in the kernel likely, and Myth will have
support on board...
