I purchased the HDHomeRun Networked Digital TV Tuner and we'll see how well it works with Windows Media Center.

I love mine. I got the one with two tuners and it's perfectly capable of recording two shows at once while I'm watching something on my TV. – Bryan Anderson Feb 4 '10 at 5:22

I'd recommend an internal tuner, but if it must be USB the AVerMedia is cheap, small and reliable.

I had a DViCo Fusion nano and it was a great unit until it suddenly died. I replaced it with two Pinnacle PCTV USB HD Sticks and they work great, but I notice that they have just sold that business.

Look into the ASUS PE9400. This is the cheapest I could find with good HD features.
