    I hear an EyeTV is a good choice. Check out Plextor's lineup of products for Mac compatible tuners as well.

    And make sure you punish your dog for screwing with your laptop.

    And may I recommend popping the space bar off and on?

    EyeTVs are excellent, but if you are really hardcore about your TV I recommend you buy a Mini and use it as a permanent "TV recording.. thingy" unless you intend to plant your MBP on your desk whole day :D

    I bought a Freecom DVB-T (terrestrial digital TV) USB stick for my PC. Then, a few months later, I shelled out for the eyeTV software. Works great with the Freecom.

    EyeTV's a really nice application, and the Freecom's quite a nice receiver, although the bundled aerial is pretty poor. Also, it's digital-only, so you'd have to live somewhere that DVB is available. Nice & cheap at £31 though!
