Windows Vista Media Center

In order to set up my Windows Media Center to watch tv shows, I need a tv turner. I have looked and found them but not sure which one to get. Anybody have any ideals on which one is a good one. thanks

I see two choices.

You may want to choose either price or name. For price, just hit amazon, newegg, geeks or other .com. The Hauppaugge units get a slight nod because they have a slew of choices and you can slide up the features (along with price) but they tend to just work.
