cableCard tuner for XBMC? - outleradam - 2010-01-08 05:49
My cable company informed me that they are going fully digital to compensate for bandwidth problems. This will speed up my internet and make all my channels digitally encrypted.
I will need a cable card tuner.
Can anyone recommend one other then these? http://www.ehomeupgrade.com/2008/09/23/cannon-pc-selling-internal-external-cablecard-tuners-for-windows-vista-media-center-pcs/

XBMC won't support the card directly. You'll have to use some PVR backend that we end up supporting as a frontend (myth, vdr, tvheadend, etc). Full support is still in a branch and a month or so off of merge. Regardless, you'll have to find a card that's supported by the backend, not XBMC.

Ok. Thanks. Any other non Ati options? I am going to get one, bit I would like a dual tuner. I have not been able to find anything. After seeing my hdhomerun in action I am sure there has to be a cablecard equivalant

heh... good idea... how the heck do you use that mailing list? It's set up like a forum, but I can't post.
