Used to have a Series2 Tivo that I'd archive SpeedTV. Now with Series3 and Cablecards COX has made it impossible to transfer many channels (all above OTA).

So I'm thinking about getting a USB tuner for the computer and do it that way.

Any of you with a USB or a PCI-E card out there?

I'm guessing it's best to get one with on-board processing, but finding them is difficult. Either that or maybe find a new graphics board that also does NTSC processing?

Any suggestions?

Is Speed Network in digital form on your cable company's network? If so, your only option would be to get some sort of analog capture device, and connect the composite or S-Video output (and analog audio outs) from the cable receiver box to the capture device. A QAM receiver won't work, and you can't get CableCARD receiver units to work with anything other than a CableCARD-certified machine running Windows Vista.
