It doesn't. You said you wanted to record to a hard drive so you need something capable of that and a computer is one way. Just add a cable card tuner to a low end PC and you're done. Or get a Tivo...

Are you doing this as some kind of fun project? Otherwise it seems kind of pointless. Most cable providers have done away with clear QAM channels so any tuners in that TV would be useless. There are...

The idea is to make the refresh rate match, but your TV has to be able to accept a 23.976 rate. If it can only do 60Hz then this isn't going to work for you. You also have to make sure your graphics...
