Currently, for people who's TV service is provided with an IPTV system
(Like HomeChoice, FastWeb and SaskTel customers), you can't use an
Air2PC, as the TV signal is provided via an ADSL line as an RTP
stream. That means no Air2PC, as there's no QAM. Therefore, to capture
from this system, you will have to take an analogue stream from the
STB into a capture card (The old-fashioned way), and control it with
an IR Blaster.
