Thanks for all the responses.  I was using windows before this and was
able to see a bunch of un-encrypted channels video and audio so I know
its working from that aspect and its just a matter of getting mythtv to
work now I guess.

Should I be able to get the regular NTSC channels as well (2 to 83)? 

I'll try to adjust the time out and see if that works.
