If you just want to watch tv on the PC, I'd recommend "me tv" over
mythtv, it is a lot easier to get setup.  It also supports scheduled
recording with sane file names too.

I use me tv with a "Leadtek WinFast DTV Dongle", which is a usb stick
with a single digital tuner in it.  Works a treat.  Sorry I don't have
the packaging to give you more info on it.  Here is the lsusb output
ID 0413:6f00 Leadtek Research, Inc. WinFast DTV Dongle (STK7700P based)

Depending on the store you go to you _may_ be able to plug it into a
laptop and test it.

Cheers

Dave
