Miglia is trying to close the "missing link" of the Mac Mini DVR with the TVMax. The TVMax fits perfectly underneath the Mac Mini. It allows you to watch television and record to MPEG-2, MPEG-4 and even DivX (!!). The TVMax is bundled with EyeTV 2.0 for all of the software functionality needs. It will be available for $249.
For the nitty gritty specs: the TVMax connects via USB 2.0, has an analog tuner that supports up to 125 channels, supports the standard definition resolutions (PAL/NTSC or PAL/SECAM), allows for antenna or direct cable connection and has an external power supply. One of the key features is the ability to capture VHS and Hi8 tapes. What, no Betamax?
