Default HD TV tuner

I just ordered my new system and want to get a tv tuner too. I would like to know who else has a HD tuner (which one) and what you think of it.

Hauppage seems to be the tv tuner of choice. I emailed them and they said a HD version should be released by year end if anyone is interested.

It's USB. It sucks.

USB isn't enough for NTCS, it sure as **** isn't enough for HDTV.

I'm impatiently waiting to get a new computer until this comes out...

...also see this thread.

It's the first of it's kind and it sounds like it will be pretty good so I figure it'll be worth the wait, however long that is.
