I also had the same problem, my existing PCI dual tuner died. I
eventually settled on a KWorld USB Dual DVB-T TV Stick (DVB-T 399U) for
less than $100 including delivery from mwave.com.au (plug: I'm a happy
customer, they got the order to me even though I stuffed up the delivery

Debian doesn't ship the 2.6.32 kernels yet because they haven't been
released, so I needed to download and build the latest v4l-dvb modules
which wasn't at all difficult. Also needs a firmware blob which was a
bit harder to find.

Works great, highly recommended.
