A have analog cable feed from comcast -- the cheapest smallest package they
have.  It is analog and quite ugly with only three useful channels, but it
meets my needs.

The most flexible standalone tuner is the HDHomeRun which has dual tuners
and is accessible across the network.  It works with Mythtv, Windows media
center, etc.  I don't have one, so my advice is just from reading up on it
-- no idea if it will work for what you want to do.
