Laptop Digital TV tuners

I have just bought a new laptop and want to be able to watch and record

I don't have a clue which digital TV tuner would be best to buy, and the pros and cons of each.

Please advise and please post a few recommendations

I think you need to have USB 2 for these tuners. Make sure your laptop has that first.
