Lightbulb Alternative to TVonNav?

Of the handful of TV tuners that are available that allows you to watch TV while in motion TVonNav seems to be unanimously the best there is. I have noticed most are willing to pay the price based on the positive feedback from other people that have already bought it. I am no different. However, there comes a certain point when there is a big enough difference in price to consider something else... that is less proven. If anyone has had experience with the TV modules at http://www.tvfree-modules.com plz let me know. I am only researching at this point and havenít even flirted with the idea of buy from an unproven vendor. (BTW: Ä 99,00 is about $187.00)
Any input is appreciated. Thanks.

It appears that the product you linked simply allows you to bypass the "no tv while car is in motion" aspect that is built in to the cars. It does not appear to include the TV tuner itself.

Yeah thats what I came up with too and that is what everyone is telling me too. I assume the TV tuner is where you take the biggest hit on cash with the TVonNAV? Also on another board someone mentioned there might be problems anyway because we use the NTSC video format and they use PAL.
I'll go ahead and let this thread die now. It did make me raise an eye though!!
Thx 4or your input.
