No, that's not true.  You have two digital cable (QAM) options.  You can add
1-n DVB capture cards to your Myth Box - Fusion 5's, pcHDTV 3000/5500, etc.
You can also capture via firewire from select cable boxes - Motorola 6200
and SA 3250 are the two I'm most familiar with - and they both have the
capability of having their channels changed via firewire.
