Nice card. Unfortunately Time Warner has the local monopoly and I would probably get no use out of this promising capture card.

Sadly I continue to rely on my two HD-PVRs. Fortunately they are working great.

Sucks for TW customers. I recommended to Jeremy that they have a cable provider compatibility list on their web site for potential customers. Silicon Dust does a very good job with their open QAM channel database on their site. I'm sure they'll do the same once they release their new cablecard box (HDHomerun Prime).

I listened to the interview, well some of it.
So this card is to run a cable TV feed directly into a MythTV box?

Be curious if it works with FoxTel and Optus, not that I have either though.
