    I've bought a Hauppage WinTV digital Nova-T PCI card from PC world for £40 that works pretty well with Windows media centre (which is just as well because the bundled software is useless )

    Hauppage gets my vote (and money). I have a couple of PVR350s for mythtv.

    I like the pair of GDI Black Gold cards that I have. Certified for Windows MCE but not sure about Linux-based systems DB.

    Avermedia Hybrid card doing a sterling job here - bought it quite a while back in Maplins on special at about £40, which means you can probably find the it at any normal online store for about the same price...
