Hmmm....  This is interesting.  I wonder what all the hoo-ha was over the
WinTV cards.  How long ago did you buy it (round about)?

Anyone else hear of other cards that work well with MythTV?

You are running it under satellite, right?  I'm going to try this with a
digital cable set-up.  Does anyone know how the digital cable set-up
works?  Do I use the cable box still to decode the signal or do I scrap
the cable box altogether?

Thanks much!
