Default TV Tuners

Are there any HD TV tuners available for PCs? I'm greatly considering selling my current TV (flatscreen 20" Phillips) to a friend and using the money to buy a 20" widescreen viewsonic with a tv tuner.

Currently at college i take an s-video out of the pc and put it into the phillips tv and it does not exactly come out so great since it is a 4:3 format. the 16:10 or whatever monitors should get a decent signal for tv and have reasonable movie playback. this is for a room that is not too big so 20" high-def screen is perfect. the logitech digital speakers i got are great for it, too

I don't really know much about TV tuners, but I have seen them around and think they are decent. thank you for any help.
