Since I got my Fusion5USB and joined the ever-growing group of beta testers
, I've wondered how the MDP-130 handled QAM, since they don't have the option of updating their QAM decoding routines on a monthly/daily/hourly basis. There's so much talk of "send them a snippet of suspect QAM TS and maybe they can figure-out why you got a BSOD"; I'm amazed that the MyHD doesn't seem to have those problems - maybe it just handles it more gracefully?
Anyway, thanks for the answer. I'll check out those other links that Terry sent also. Please feel free to bicker at will...
One other thought: Is it worth starting a thread to define "HD runs just fine on my setup"? - hang with me here - I keep wondering when you have few enough or infrequent enough stutters to "run fine". My system can go several minutes of HD watching (1080 or 720) without a single stutter, and then go through a few seconds of freeze-frame animation, then be fine again. Is it my PC, some background process, my video card, the cableco, the content provider, space aliens, or what? Pick ANY thread on the topic and some guy will declare that you really need an NVIDIA 7xxx series card for smooth 1080 playback, and the next poster will say that their system runs HD "just fine" with a TNT2 card on a 486-33. (OK, maybe not that bad, but you get my point
