yeah, i think you misunderstood...
I have ANALOG cable, which I use my PVR-350 to tune with..that is 
NTSC-hrc, QAM-XXX is only used on Digital Cable, so yes..my pcHDTV is 
connected to an OTA Antenna...as such I need to tune/record both OTA 
channels, and Cable-analog channels.

Does that make sense now?
