As previously posted, Elegato makes some nice ones. I myself have been looking into picking one up. There is actually a knock-off of Elegato's EyeTV 200 (one I've been looking into) made by Plextor, called the Plextor ConvertX PVR. It has everything that the EyeTV 200 has, but retails for $100 less (granted, without a remote, but eh, is that really that big of a deal?).

I'd use Windows... but I like the Mac OS more.

If you have a Motorola digital converter from a cable service provider with a firewire output you can utilize this:
I haven't got a chance to use it yet but some friends have with good results. I could see Apple including software similar to this in the Mini and including the Front Row interface to make a formidable machine with a miniscule footprint in the living room.
