I've got a Shuttle box with a DVB USB stick in it running MythTV which does that job. (And then I have a user script to dump radio programs to mp3 with an RSS feed which I subscribe to so I can listen on the train).

… not such a simple UI that I'd be happy setting one up and letting one of my parents loose on it though.
