??? I didn't think it was possible to hang any kind of card on a Virgin cable 
line. Are you telling me this is really possible? Cable operators in the UK, so 
far as I know, are under no obligation to provide services in the way that those 
in the US are, they can do their own thing with regard to frequencies, encoding, 

I would be delighted to sling our crappy STB and replace it with a Mythtv card. 
Just tell me how!
