[mythtv-users] Help with choices for new HDTV card (US)

I'm trying to decide what route to take for HDTV here in the US.
I'll be starting with OTA but would like to go to Cable/QAM.

It seems to me there are two choices. The HD-3000 and the 
ATSC/8VSB HDTV PCI Card (SkyStar Chip?)

What I gather from the specs is that the HD-3000 has a more
flexible frontend but the SkyStar chip has less processor load.
Because its front-end is more flexible, the possibility exists
for the HD-3000 to handle QAM.

Anyone know for sure? Has anyone tried both?
