Hello


I recently purchased the Silicon Dust HDHOME RUN and have a dual tuner setup by my HTPC. I pay a monthly service to my local cable company which gives me a basic package. However, I was told that regardless of my package, I could not record HD unless I bought this package.

Is this really required to record HD? Can't a regular TV tuner work?

Well I just said why... We don't have any unencrypted content on cable or satellite, barring a few test channels or a few they may have left open by mistake, and we don't have the hardware necessary to decrypt it on a PC.


You can use a regular capture card to record the SD output of your cable box, that Hauppauge box, or one other card to record the component/HDMI output. No tuning.
