The PVR-250 doesn't decode digital channels.  You still need your cable
box.  You'll need an IR blaster to change channels, and a lot of patience. I
have a low success rate with my IR blaster and my DCT2100.  It's not that
the IR blaster is so bad, but that the DCT box is very slow, and sometimes
misses remote button presses.

I only use the DCT to record the digital channels; I have other PVR cards
set up to record analog channels.
