I've been using (in the UK) a PCTV Nanostick T2 with great success
recently. Had to do a small build and install of a git repository,
but no more than 4 commands to do that, and all well documented on
the website.

Only issue for me now is the issue of sound on BBC HD and Channel 4
HD going missing during programs sometimes, but works properly
during breaks and idents etc. This is apparently an ffmpeg issue
related to the audio stream switching from one format to another, an
hopefully will get fixed soon!
