There's plenty of history in the list archives as this is a pretty
frequent question.

I'm really happy with my HDHomerun 3. I'm not sure if you're familiar
with them, but they are a stand alone tuner that basically puts the
MPEG2 stream from ATSC (Over the air) or unencrypted cable (QAM) on
your network. It's nice because you don't have to worry about kernel
drivers and it also means you don't have to run your coax cable to
your computer in a combined frontend/backend MythTV setup. My HDHR is
in the closet with the rest of the networking equipment and my MythTV
FE/BE is in the entertainment center.
