So you're saying that I could possibly just bypass the capture card completely and actually use the cable box as the hdtv capture device if I get one that supports firewire?
If this is the case, then does anyone have any recommendations on what brand/type of hdtv cable box I should request from Comcast? Or maybe could I buy my own and just make sure I get one that does not encrypt the firewire output?
Thanks for the help!
