The present state of things is that you can have a dual NTSC tuner 
(PVR500) or you can have a single tuner which can do NTSC and ATSC 
depending on its setup.
Or you can get a PVR500 for the PCI slot and an HDHomeRun which gives 
you 2 ATSC tuners, for a total of 4 tuners, with 2 on each signal. And I 
would consider that 2 tuners is the minimum for any type of signal.

And remember that 'Cable' can be, and generally is, both analog and 
unencrypted digital.
