My question would be, why are you so keen on getting something that has 
hardware mpg encoding when you don't care about analog? Digital TV 
signals already come pre-encoded as mpeg, so your card doesn't need to 
do any hardware encoding.... It would need to do hardware encoding if 
you wanted to encode your analog signals in hardware instead of software 
Another point about the digital signals: you may care about analog, as 
the digital channels for your cable may be mostly encrypted.
