I just picked up a Miglia TV Tuner from Macsales.com for $39 and its pretty good.

I downloaded EyeTV software instead of using the included Tube program. Apparently with EyeTV and a Turbo.264 device attached, it takes the load off my CPU when recording and exporting in the background- which is REALLY nice considering the 1.66GHz CD and integrated graphics my mini packs.

Of course the 640x480 doesn't look exciting up close on my 20inch display, but for $39..... If you want an HD tuner its gonna cost you upward of $120+ plus the consideration of an independent one or the hybrid Elgato offers which would dump a HUGE load onto your CPU.

Whatever tuner is 1. a fiture-proof Hybrid and supports BOTH analog and digital - and 2. comes bundled with some version of EyeTV is the way to go. Miglia had a fallout with ElGato and started bundling Equinux's TheTube software recently instead. Which ain't bad, but The Tube, even at version 2.7 still feels like an under-baked version 1.something piece of software.

I'm trying to keep up with the Mac/OSX tuner market at: http://www.mac-digital-tv-tuners.com/ - and for myself I recently bought a Hauppauge 950 Model 1145 hybrid unit that comes bundled with both PC drivers AND EyeTV LITE for Mac for well under a $100. Considering that many Mac tuners use pretty much the same OEM hardware, it's the software that really makes the product what it is, and EyeTV is simply the best - and right choice.

It's a bumpy time for the market tho. Unless you plan to be on standard analog cable for the next few years, or use an old tuner with a digital converter box - buying an analog ONLY tuner is a dead end. And things won't really stabilize till after the Over-The-Air Digital Transition in February 2009. So your money's best spent with the DIGITAL future in mind.
