System specs:

-ASUS P5N32-SLI Premium/WiFi-AP LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 590 SLI ATX Intel Motherboard(2 PCI slots, 3 PCIe slots)
-Intel Core 2 Duo E6600
-C6 or Ubutnu
-Software: MythTV or LinuxMCE

I am looking for a capture card that is reliable, known for excellent quality,  and easy to install(linux/driver support).

I may upgrade to HD in the future, so I would prefer an HD card.  However I do not want to sacrifice the characteristics in the previous paragraph. I would also prefer to be able to record one show while watching another. Again, however, I do not want to sacrafice the characteristics in the previous paragraph. I would rather have excellent quality now and upgrade later to support dual channels and HD.

I have read tons of docs and forum posts on mythtv and linuxmce sites regarding this subject. I want to be sure I am basing my decision on  the most up-to-date info.

I see a ton of info on the Hauppauge brand but not much on pcHDTV. This is surprising since pcHDTV seems to be dedicated to Linux and open-source. Is  pcHDTV not a good brand? Or am I wrong on my assumptions?
