Looking for a TV Tuner Card

I really don't know much at all about TV tuner cards, but I wanna watch TV on my computer for around $50. What card would you guys reccomend?

You should be able to pick up a TV card tuner at the computer show for about $20-$30.

Well, that seems to be a Californian thing..and seeing as how I live 3000 miles away it would be pretty difficult to make it down. How's this?

Whatever you do, dont buy one called the "Sabrent SBT-TVFM". Because I made the mistake of getting it. I have no colour, and no sound. Brilliant.

No colour and no sound suggests that the tuner is NTSC instead of PAL if you're in the UK.

You won't be wrong with a Leadtek I have one (other model I believe..) and I'm very content of it.
