I would recommend using a Hauppauge (even if you can get a Yuan or
something else cheaper). Currently the cheapest of the Hauppauge line
is the PVR-150 (it's also the best--the PVR-500 is basically just two
PVR-150's, so it's not really "better," just two of the best).
You can find the PVR-150 for about $70 after rebates at local retailers
(CompUSA, Circuit City, Best Buy, etc.). If you don't want to wait for
a special, it will cost about $90.
