GNU/Linux PVR on a laptop?

Any suggestions for the best GNU/Linux-friendly TV hardware solution for my laptop? So, no PCI. It looks like none of the USB models are supported by MythTV. Information about PCMCIA card compatibility is hard to come by. I'd prefer USB anyway.

The most readily available seem to be the WinTV (Haupage), Pinnacle, and TV Wonder (ATI), all USB2 of course.

I just want to watch shows (monitor max res is 1680x1050), and do some timeshifting.

I'm not sure what "unsupported by MythTV" means for general compatibility.
