Might I recommend buying a USRP instead, with a TVRX board?  The hardware will 
be much less expensive, and the software build is much easier (the mc4020 
module isn't, IIRC, fully maintained at this point in time).

And it would be a tremendous help to the GNUradio project to get the HDTV 
stuff running on the current code.... :-)
