For tv capture one of the best is WinTV PVR-250/350 (later having tv-out)

They have tuners and svideo inputs I believe.

They also output mpeg2, so you don't need to use CPU to compress video.

What I am not sure about if you can put mpeg2 it produces on dvd without 
transcoding (IMO that would cause significant quality dip).

Both are supported relatively well under linux and with MythTV.

Might be overkill for your needs.
