I have read a handful of threads and still am confused, so here is what i want to do, . .

first off i ordered pcHDTV-5500 today, and then hrs later i read somethings that lead me to believe that i did not buy what i thought i did.

I will install this card in my ubuntu box and then run coax from the Motorola FIOS that would go to my TV to my pcHDTV instead, . . . and then i am hoping that and HD programs that I grab through the tuner will be just that, HD, . . . . am i right?

If you are recording digital stations, you'll be able to record unencrypted QAM stations. What stations are available to you depends on what your provider sends unencrypted over QAM. It varies greatly from provider to provider and region to region. not all QAM stations are HD, and most people get their locals in HD, and a scattering of other channels.
