yeah, I have no true options as my cable provider (Charter) markets their
own PVR settopbox. Right now I'm just pulling the lower 100 channels in
Analog off the cable and at some point I'll set up an IR blaster for the
cable box access and pull it from there via S-Video. I'm sorry, I don't
want to be stuck with their lousy 40gb internal drive and no DVD writing
