Right now I use a AverTV combo card, but I really want to watch digital channels my cable company has to offer. The AverTV just has s-video input. How do I input the HD from a HD cable box to my PC to use in Vista WMC?

This is far from my area of expertise, but you may be able to transfer the videos from the cable box to your PC via firewire, if such a connector exists on the box and happens to be unlocked. At least that's what I heard a guy say he was doing.

The only real consumer method is the Hauppauge HD-PVR, it accepts component input from the cable box, and connects to the PC via USB. It will not work with Media Center, however, AFAIK.
