Personally I use the Myth-tv and I love it, my wife loves it, and in our IT
department at work 5 of the 7 people use it at home and love it.  We all use
the hauppauge cards one 500, one 250, one 350, and three 150 cards (one of
us has two cards)  - mine is the 250 card and I would recommend it to
anyone.  I will probably get a second 250 card for my kids tv soon, but I am
tempted to try out one of the HD cards that are made for Linux, only down
side is that it doesn't come with a remote control.
