[mythtv-users] Do DVB card "encode"?

Hi Folks,

Might be a silly question, but my PVR-250 had a hardware encoder (or is it
decoder!?) which was great, I'm wondering if DVB cards have/need the same
thing? I kind of thought that because the signal is digital that it doesn't
need to encode it so no hardware encoder was needed? Having installed a
couple of Nova-T's though, the system is really slow making me wonder if the
CPU is forced to do allot more work than when I had the PVR-250...

Thanks all,
