Let me see if I understand, you have an HD3K using the
dvb drivers and have it hooked up to basic cable?  I'm
pretty sure that won't work, but I think you can use
it for NTSC (with the v4l drivers but I'm not sure if
you can do dvb and v4l at the same time).  The answer
I gave you earlier was using the HD3K hooked up to an
antenna to receive ATSC over the air.
