Comments: HD capture cards

Long term, I'm waiting against all odds for a CableCard capable thingy. In the meantime, my current working version is OTA HDTV via an ATI HDTV card on Windows MCE. Next step will be XBOX-360 (with Media Center Extender) hooked up to my main TV so that I can actually view HDTV on my HDTV instead of my PC.

I bought the FusionHDTV5 USB card to use with MCE. I only get four OTA stations that are good (not jerky, audio in sync) with MCE, though most of the signals are totally fine when using the included software. I also get clear QAM with the FusionHDTV software, but not, of course, with MCE.

I went into elaborate detail of the setup on my blog if you are at all interested.
