  I'm looking to buy a new card with at least dual ATSC tuners.
  The HDHR seems to be one of the better supported and more
  popular devices so I'm leaning that way. But I have an extra
  PCI (not PCIe) slot, and I'm wondering if there's an internal
  card that is also well supported and regarded that will fit my
  needs. What do people recommend?

The nice thing about the HDHR is that it is portable - if you
have to swap out a motherboard in the future, the HDHR will go
with it, and I love my single tuner version.  They just work, and
they work well.

I have two internal PCI cards for tuner 1 and 2, and the HDHR is
my 3rd and/or LiveTV tuner, and I bought the cards used on ebay
for about $20 each (ATI HDTV Wonder), and the HDHR single for $30
on ebay.  You can find the older model (which is fine) on ebay
often for around $60, sometimes from the factory as a closeout...
