You might look into the Hauppauge WinTV-PVR-USB2.  It's basically a PVR-250
hanging off a USB port.  There's a Linux driver for it at
http://www.isely.net/pvrusb2.html, and while I've not tried plugging it into my
MythTV box, it looks like it wouldn't be much more trouble than the PVR-x50s
I'm currently using.
