Others on the list know much more than I do about HD.  What I have
heard is that the pcHDTV (PCHD3000) card was designed for linux, designed
for receiveing OTA HD bradcast signals, and has been reported by other
members on this list that it will tune digital cable channels.  As you are
porbably already aware, newer monitors will support 1600 x 1200 lines
of resolution.  Isnt HDTV around 800-1200?  If I have a misunderstanding
in any of these facts please someone let me know, because I plan on
building a DVR myself.
