Please Help: Recommend a TV Turner for Mac

    I am considering purchasing a good/great TV tuner for the Mac, so I can
    watch cable TV on the computer. Can someone please recommend a TV tuner
    that works well with snow leopard 10.6.4? Others on the Internet
    complained that some TV turners often crash on the Mac, while others
    have trouble receiving cable channels via co-axial (not over the air).

    I can use either a PCI or USB slot for the TV turner, so please
    recommend a company and particular model.

    Thanks
    Tony

    The Elgato EyeTV Hybrid works well for me on Mac OX X 10.6.6. It's a
    USB stick connected to my cable service via coax.

    I have older eye tv software that came with a plextor Convertx.
    However, it doesn't seem to work with Dish network. Have any of you
    found a solution that works with satellite tv?
