Not sure which brand of tuner to buy.

I'm considering replacing my Hauppauge PVR-150 with a new tuner because it won't pick up HBO.

I'm wondering if anyone can recommend a brand that seems to work well with SageTV. My setup is simple - I don't even have a cable box. I just have a cable outlet on the wall. I don't need a radio tuner nor even a remote control. Just the ability to record shows on my PC (Comcast digitable cable). I want to spend $100 or less.

Also, I'm not sure if it's best to go USB. I've got plenty of PCI slots, but if I ever buy a PCI-Express computer, will the old PCI cards work in it? I figure USB will work in any machine.

My other tuner (WinTv-1600) provides over-the-air tuning plus QAM content.
