I got a Leadtek Winfast TV 2000 XP Deluxe (stereo, and one of the cheapest here:
100$CDN) for TV input - the tuning quality is good (not great, there are some
very faint stripes on some channels, but the regular TV's here do have them too
- must be some bad reception/splitting).

For Tv-Out, I got a GF2 MX400 with Tv-Out (65$CDN - less than the non-tv-out
version ;).

It was very cheap, and works well for me. My CPU is a Celeron 1100A (256k L2
cache - not the older crap), with 512 megs of ram, and a 20 Gigs hard disk, I
can record 480x480 fine, never tried going higher. IMHO, with that kind of
processing power, you don't even need hardware MJPEG, and will get great
