Please understand the limitations of such a tuner card.  As MythTV will 
likely never be licensed by CableLabs, all we will be able to capture is 
that content which the tuner outputs unencrypted.  That means content 
marked copy-freely.  This card will replace firewire capture off STBs, 
but not analog capture.
