Well, since nobody seems to have responded yet, I will.  I use the ATI 
TV Wonder-VE which is a mono software encoding card for less than $50. 
Note this is NOT one of the "All-in-Wonder" cards.  They don't work.

I'm pretty darn happy with it.  It's much better quality than a 6 hour 
setting on a VHS recorder, but not quite real broadcast quality on my 
system.  I'm saving up for a PVR-250 later this year.
