My TV favorite tuner of all time, the SiliconDust HDHR Dual QAM tuner is on sale at Amazon/AntOnline(affiliate) for $122.51 Shipped. This is the cheapest I've ever seen the HDHR so this might be a good time to pick one up if you're in the market for one.SiliconDust HDHR-US HDHomeRun Networked Digital TV Tuner $122.51
I own 2 of these which give me 4 independent QAM HD tuners (can also be used for OTA HD) with no need for open PCI slots! I really love this device and highly recommend it.
Thanks to Peter for the Tip!
