OK, I can't find a thread that discusses comcast or direct tv plans to provide or license an HD card for my HTPC that will work with one or both systems. Please direct me if the thread exists.


If not, does anyone know their plans on releasing such a beast?


If I only use an HTPC do I have any other choices in receiving and descrambling these cable/sat broadcasts?

Origionaly it was announced by one of the MS OEMs that you would be able to use a cable card tuner card on a MS MCE system by this coming winter. Later it appeared that this might not happen. When MS releases its update2 to MCE 2005 later this month it will be know if this will be available this year. There are no known plans for the domestic satellite companies to permit the use of a Satellite tuner card with a satellite card slot. However, MS has stated that they are talking to the satellite companies but has not indicated if any progress has resulted.
