According to Silicon Dust
comcast is currently providing 127 channels in Los Gatos unencrypted
over QAM.  You don't need their HDHomerun (although I would highly
recommend it), any QAM tuner will do.  There's an outfit in Livermore,
Retek Direct, selling myth-compatible ATI HDTV Wonder PCI cards for
$14 a piece on fleabay.  I'm using one now, for when I need to record
Disney, Sprout, and PBS all at the same time :)
