Well not sure about cheap but the Hauppage WinTV HVR-900 now works 
(natively supported from Kernel 3.0 onwards) but it requires a couple of 
firmware files.

Other than that I have a Freecom DVB-T USB stick (not sure of the exact 
model as I don't have it to hand) and this works on Ubuntu 11.04 and 
previous versions so I'd be surprised if it didn't work on Ubuntu 11.10. 
  I've seen the Freecom sticks on eBay for about 10 quid.
