PVR-150s and 500s are readily available on eBay, however the low profile 
150s were not common even when being manufactured.  I see three 
available on eBay at the moment, however they are considerably more 
expensive than the full size versions. The HVR-2250 is a low profile 
MPEG encoder, however there is currently no analog support in linux.

Your other options:
         Just buy a big card, put it in an old box, and shove it in your 
closet as your backend.
         Buy an old WinTV-PVR-USB2. Youre going to have to go on eBay 
for this like the other PVR cards.
         Buy a newer WinTV-HVR-1950 USB.
