We don't see a lot of people from pakistan here so you may be on your own finding a tuner that works in your area. If your cable box puts out svideo and analog audio you connect the svideo into a tuner and audio into the soundcard. If you can find a tuner that will actually tune your cable format then you can get that, connect the coax to it and then you don't need the separate set top box or to run separate audio or svideo.
Did I just totally confuse you? Hell I'm confused by my own explanation but I can't think of how to explain it any easier.
To upscale dvd to a hdtv use ffdshow, ac3filter, and either zoomplayer or Media Player Classic home theater edition. (I prefer Zoom but some feel it's too complicated with too many options.) I like all the options since I can make it work exactly how I want.
To figure out how to set up ffdshow look in the ffdshow sticky here or there are many guides and tips all over the internet.
Also there's always theatertek/ffdshow if you want to buy theatertek for your player.
