Are TV Tuners Still a Thing?

I want to record OTA TV and have DVR functionality. I have a Tablo but it's packed away some where (we are supposed to move) so I am looking at the tuner route. It would have to be USB as all my HTPC mobo slots are full.

Anything I should look at?

Search for "ATSC USB tuner DVR" at Newegg and ebay?
Here's an example, the first link that pops up on DDG, an Amazon link.

Honestly, most of the "name brands" have moved on from this sort of thing, the product space for these is mostly occupied by generics and Chinese products, under $30/50.

Thanks for the responses. I dug out my Tablo Quad and hooked it back up.

Most of our household goods are packed as we were supposed to move across country earlier this month. But COVID put that on hold for now.
