[mythtv-users] STB Configuration Assistance

Here in Eastern Nebraska (under 12"+ of snow today, thank you very much)
we have TimeWarner Cable and use there STB to decode encrypted digital
and many of the HD channels. Up to this point, I have used to PVR 150
cards to capture the analog signal (channels 2-80 in this area) and an
HDHomeRun to capture the half dozen or so unencrypted local channels on
the cable.

With all the new on demand and HD channels TW is offering I would like
to take advantage of them. But, of course, they are encrypted and I need
a STB to access the signal. Without changing my current hardware will I
be able to use a IR Blaster of some type to manage the STB and use the
HDHomeRun to get the HD channels? Will I get HD qality?

Hope this makes sense.
