Check out the information from the http://www.mythtv.org folks.  As far
as I know, the "broadcast flag, has not yet been required of all
devices.  If you'll be recording Over The Air (OTA) TV in ATSC format,
a lot of people like the HD Home Run unit.

For the OP, your requirements can be met quite well with a Haughpage
PVR-150 (which I use on my Mythbuntu box) or PVR-350 or PVR-500.  All
seem well supported.  I record from my DirecTV receiver using the
S-Video input on the PVR-150.  The PVR series mentioned are analog
capture only.
