I read through your website (friendly navigation, clean interface btw) but after reading both the FAQ, installation instructions, and scanning the XBMC forums, I did not find an answer to the following question:
What video input cards/dongles are fully supported and which would you recommend for main-room HTPC usage?
Thank you kindly for your tireless work. We appreciate you!
Any card that is supported under linux will work.

I personally prefer to steer clear of cheap usb tuners as they tend to bring nothing but hassle.
I have had the best experience with hauppauge pci cards. the nova range is well supported and very reliable. i use dvb-t and dvb-s cards however you will need to choose depending on access to feeds and space in the machine.
have a look on auction sites for 'hauppauge nova' they are quite cheap now.
HDhomerun is also worth a look: http://www.silicondust.com/
i would recommend searching the mythtv gossamer threads for information on cards before you buy as some require drivers to be built which can be a pain.
i hope this helps.
