Red face Dual DIgital QAM PCI or USB ?

due to the cable switch over to digital, I am looking for a dual digital
QAM tuner to be able to record 2 clear QAM channels simultaneously, and use my other cards
plus an infared blaster, and or an USB UIRT to change the channels on the miniboxes.

Does such a product exist, I'm preferring cheap as possible, and of course, must work with Sagetv. I am also looking for the another dual digital usb or pci card
with the best reception for fringe OTA . but the card for the cable only needs to be stable, not great reception, as it's plugged into cable.

I know about the HD Homerun, but I am hoping for something cheaper.

the only other decent dual tuner card I can think of is the Hauppauge HVR-2250.

For $100 if you wait for a sale (~ $120 otherwise), the HD Homerun is well worth the money.
