Thanks Colin for that link, that's excellent (I'm in Brampton). However I
"To get any digital channels from Rogers in any form into your MythTV box
you need a Rogers digital box, an IR blaster (that can mimic a Rogers
digital box remote control) and a MythTV compatible analog tuner. The idea
being that the IR blaster controls the Rogers box and you read the result
via the analog card. This is not true HDTV but at present it is the only way
to work things with Rogers HDTV. "
My understanding in this area is pretty limited still so am I correct in
saying that for me to get HDTV going here the best I can get is basically
higher quality analog?
