For me the SoundBlaster 1024 Live (emu10k1 based) worked really well. It
"just worked". Don't think they're produced anymore, but can be had second
hand for a few euros. The only thing worth noting is that you have to create
a cable with a RCA connector on one end (to plug in the AV receiver) and a
mono 3.5mm jack plug on the other end to plug in the soundcard.
