I'm using a Haupauge Nexus-CA for 2 years now and I'm very satisfied with it.
But actually don't now if there are any better (maybe HDTV) cards on  
the market now.

Software: I think VDR is the right software you are looking for.
You can watch, record (cat, burn, convert the recordings), stream TV  
programs with it, has many many plugins and can handle up to 4  
DVB-S/C/T cards.
