A while back my father commissioned me to build him a "home entertainment PC". He wanted to use it for pictures, dvds, music, and to have a TV-tuner card/DVR. At the time he used analog cable only as all his favorite channels were available through analog cable. I am quite experienced with building computers (however, I had never dealt with DVR/TV-Tuners) and I was able to satisfy him. For the TV-Tuner I selected a Happauge HVR-1800 and the build went along smoothly. He has been using his computer as intended for a while (he particularly liked the Vista Media Center) but recently he received a letter from his cable company that they were switching a good chunk of his favorite channels to digital only. So he wants to switch over to digital cable and still be able to record TV as he has become accustomed to. This has put me in kind of a bind as I don't know how to advise him at this point, so I turn to the forums for help. What will my father need to do to be able to record his digital television?
Thanks in advance for the help.
