[mythtv-users] Need graphics+Tuner recommendations

I'm trying to work out what integrated graphics + tuner card to buy for a
system I'm trying to set up with a small form factor. I need a tuner on an
AGP card so that I can use the PCI slot for a second tuner. I also want to
get DVI output for my LCD screen.
I've put full details of what I've learned (from scratch) on
http://users.pandora.be/sim/linux/pvr.html but getting the right video card
(and then finding it online in Belgium) is where I am not sure. I don't
think I need much graphics power - Myth will be the only application running.
I know the PVR350 has TV-out but it sounds tought to get configured, so I was
erring towards a nVidia solution, as they have generally been good to Linux.
But FX, MX, GFroce 2 or 4, ... leave me confused. ATI-based products also
seem widely available online, but are these even supported by Linux?
