    I have been using a Terratec Cinergy 2400 card for a while now, it is very nice and has 2 tuners on it , so you can record 1 channel while watching another.

    It works flawlessly in Mediaportal, on both the standalone version of Media Portal and the TV Server (which is what I use now)

    TerraTec - Products - TV - DVB-T (Aerial) - TerraTec Cinergy 2400i DT

    This is also a PCI-X card
