So in reading all about this device, I get that it's main function is to record tv off component inputs. But what about watching live TV? My main reason for using WinTV is to watch live television on my PC while I work, or shows recorded through my cable box. Being the consummate multitasker, I usually have chat, web, and TV all going at once. Will I still be able to watch live tv on my computer in small (4 to 6 inch) window, and go to full screen when i want, if I buy this latest piece of hardware? As I understand it, there is no tuner device capable of letting me watch HD cable channels (say ShowtimeHD) in HD off my cable box over coax + watch SD channels (say SpikeTV) over the same coax connection, so this is looking to be my only alternative.
Thankyou much for helping info!!
