I don't know if I can wholeheartedly endorse it yet, but I just ordered 
a Leadtek Winfast TV2000XP Deluxe for $56.99 and free shipping from 
www.newegg.com.  It seems comparable to the WinTV-Radio, so you might 
want to check it out.  It's supported by bttv and lirc, so hopefully it 
will be straightforward to get it working.

I haven't ordered one of these, yet, but I might be about to settle on 
the Shuttle AK35GT2.  It's an ATX form factor, with C-Media 8738 5.1 
audio out.  The 8738 is listed in the ALSA support matrix, but I haven't 
looked into it enough to feel 100% comfortable ordering one.
