that may be true, but so far you can still get HD through uncompressed 
feeds so I don't see that as a negative yet as far as the cable boxes I 
am using go. With the three pci-e slots I have extra on my mobo and the 
dual core i'm running this would come in very handy. Since there isn't 
another option at the moment for those of who unfortunately have 5c 
enabled on our HD channels this is very interesting to me.
