HDMI capture / channel switch / upscaling

Hello everyone,

This is my first post here. Could not find answers so started this thread:

I've built my first HTPC recently with i5 4570 CPU and HD7790 GPU, which handles SVP 5g and madVR level5 quite well. I use XBMC and MPC-HC as en external player for movies. I'm really impressed with PQ I have.

Now it's time for LiveTV.

I've a set-top box connected to my TV, which I don't like that much, but since it has an Irdeto encyrption card I can't pass it and use a TV Tuner with my HTPC.

So I want to buy an HDMI capture card (smt like AVerMedia AVerTV HD DVR) for watching LiveTV and PVR tasks. And here are my questions:

- Would I be able to switch channels in Kodi?
- What about EPG?
- Who does the upscaling? Can I use madVR upscaling for this task also? Or am I limited to what XBMC offers? Which algorithms?
- Any other recommendations?
