Setting up a new HTPC with some old parts so could anyone recommend me a cheapie USB DVB-T tuner that will work on Windows 8?

Or does anyone know if these work on Windows 8?

I use one of these for the far end of the house, picked up on Trademe;

I just taped the little aerial to the window, and it works great -- however I do have a good view of the transmitter out my window...

i put an avermedia twinstar in mums HTPC and it works flawlessly. ignore the avermedia software and the included remote is not universal, so will not control WMC/XBMC etc. i just got a HP remote and receiver off ebay instead.
