Yea, the HDHR can receive off-air ATSC or unencrypted QAM from a cable system. 

If you want to receive encrypted QAM signals you must use an STB and a capture 
device that accepts the output of the STB, generally either baseband or 
sometimes RF.

The HDHR is a great little device, but it has no decryption capabilities.
