Thanks Jason, Brian and everyone,

 I went ahead and bought a used AVerMedia MCE A180 HD Tuner Card for I think good price, from what I've seen here, they are Mythtv compatible.

I'll call the provider when I get home and see about those things you mention.

I suppose I'll have to leave my other card in place to get regular channels (ATI TV wonder VE)?
Your time and knowledge is always appreciated.
