I am a big fan of the HDHomeRun, its an easy way to have Media Center use a tuner without having to have it physically connected to the PC. For US users the big news is that the HDHomeRun Prime I saw at CES in 2010 is ready for pre-ordering. Engadget HD are reporting that the tuner has passed CableLabs certification and is available to pre-order on Amazon.

As well as supporting Windows Media Center it also will support other DVR packages like Myth TV. The tuner costs $207
