<I'm reading up on all this hdtv stuff so I can drool about it.
<I've read that only terrestrial hdtv is available for linux, but
<I'm not about to invest money in an antennae. I've got Dish
<currently, and I don't plan to go hybrid.
<I see that the pchdtv3000 has an svideo input. Shouldn't
<this input work with svideo outputs from receivers like the
<Dish HD receivers? Or is there a format issue?
<Also, can the pchdtv receive normal NTSC input on it's
<svideo? Or would one need a pvr x50 for that still?

You would need a card cable of capturing an HD signal
over a wired input, and I'm not aware of any card that will.
SVideo inputs cannot accept an HD signal.
Personally, I wouldn't use the HD-3000 for anything other
than Over-The-Air digital, because you can get a PVR-150
for 1/3 the price to get an svideo signal.
