Sounds like you're in the USA. With the demise of analog NTSC broadcasting 
analog cards are getting hard to find.

E-Bay might be a source.

The "gold standard" of analog cards for Myth is/was probably the Hauppauge 
PVR-x50 series, but other cards/devices can be made to work.

HD-3000/5500 cards will work, but require software encoding. The Plextor PX-
TV402U devices also work, but all of these are getting hard to find, as you 
have discovered.
