I just read on the Ceton site that the InfiniTV 4 has "Four, dual
ATSC/QAM 64/256 tuners".  What does this mean to MythTV.  I know the
CableCard is capable of decrypting six streams at a time.  Will MythTV
support multiplexing with the Ceton card?  If so, could I effectively
record eight simultaneous streams (two clear QAM and six encrypted
QAM) with the Ceton card?
