I use the WinTV Go! Model in one of my boxes, and have been (finally)
able to get a Philips saa7134 card working as well. Both of these
cards can be had for around the $20 USD price range. Check out
www.pricewatch.com and look for anything with a bt878 or bt848 in it's
specs. I recently bought 2 more bttv cards, each for 20 bucks, free
Work quite well.
HOWEVER, unless you are one of the fortunate few, you will need a
soundcard input for each of the cards you get (for me, this means 1
soundcard per capture card). Not a huge deal, you can grab used SB
Live's at 7-11 nowadays for 35 cents it seems.
