Deal of the Day - SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual Qam Tuner $140

HDHomeRun Dual QAM Tuner
If you've been pondering the best way to get unencrypted QAM into your Home Theater PC, I highly recommend the SiliconDust HDHomeRun tuner.  It connects via the ethernet so it won't take up any space inside your computer or USB ports, can tune unencrypted QAM (digital/SD & HD) channels as well as OTA HD channels and it's a dual tuner to boot.  It normally sells for $170, but NewEgg has a great deal available.

Here's how to get the SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual Digital HDTV Tuner for $140
