This is by far my favorite card for MythTV (and Freevo).

The ATI All-In-Wonder 7500
Street Price: $135

Why is it good?

. Video INPUT for Cable / Composite / S-Video
. Video OUTPUT (along with VGA) straight to TV
. 125 Channel Cable decoder
. Fast decoding

I am a big fan. I was (as you recall) looking at the 440 (nVidia) 
series card, but this one does a lot more for less money. It even boots 
the BIOS to the S-Video output.

Now, if I could just find a small PC with a form factor that allowed a 
single, full-height card (sideways, with a riser would be cool), I'd be 
even happier.
