	Does anybody have any experience with digital TV tuner cards? I'm 
thinking of picking one up in the next couple of months and I'm curious 
about which ones work well with Shaw. It would be nice to have access to 
the HD channels on the computer since none of the TVs in the house (or 
the one digital box we have) is HD compatible.

	I think I would need a basic set of definitions and vocabulary to work 
from before I start. Incidentally I plan to follow this up with a call 
to Shaw some time in the next couple of months. Consulting the folks 
here seems to be the logical first step (even before Google) because a 
few have actually set these things up.

	Some time in the future I might consider some FTA stuff. The one person 
I know who uses it all the time keeps putting off my request to actually 
see it in action. Sure the reviews from the satellite buffs are "It's 
great" but that really doesn't say anything.
