Aver A180, cheap and drivers are included in 2.6.15+
Theres also the Dvico cards.
The pcHDTV3000 was discontinued, and they now have the HD5500, with a
slight drop in price. I'd recommend this as a first HD card since it
has full linux driver support and has a better tuner for QAM than the
A180 in my experience. If you want to later add an additional tuner,
then go with the A180. I have two A180's and a HD3000 running together
in a system with no problems.
I have no experience with the Air2PC cards.
