Ok, so my friend wants to build a PC with a tuner card so he can watch tv on his computer but here is the problem....He will be using it with digital cable. I know there are no digital cable tuners at the moment that work well with MCE, but the question is this....considering he wont be watching hdtv, would running a composite cable from the all digital cable box to the composite in of a tv tuner card work to be able to watch tv in mce?

SVideo is best.

Composite is better.

Coax cable is worst.

Thanks for the responses. Just to clarify, i want to set this up on an all digital network, the cable company uses an all digital set top box and supposidely has no analog channels. Basicaly, since HD is not a concern of his, you are saying that running svideo from cable box to the tv card gets around qam or whatever? I need a difinitave answer and some card reccommendations.
