I am looking for an ATSC dual tuners which receives TV signals from an OTA antenna attached to my roof. My HTPC is a linux computer running XBMC which will record OTA TV programs.
I will consider USB or ethernet (but not PCI-E) dual tuners for 1080i or 720p resolution.
Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-850, WinTV-HVR-950Q, KWorld UB435-Q are all USB single tuner. Which is the best USB single tuner for my situation?

iView 3500STB DTV Converter Box is a standalone box with a single tuner, so it will not connect to my HTPC.

SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual has dual tuners with ethernet port.

Is SiliconDust HDHomeRun Dual the only option with ATSC dual tuners?

The AVerTV Duet works for me, but it is PCI-E.

The HDHomeRun Dual is the only non-PCI-e dual ATSC tuner available. It also has Linux drivers.
