If it's coming in over S-Video, it needs digitized and encoded and will
use your CPU as the pcHDTV3000/5500 cards have no hardware encoding
support. If it's coming in over the antenna, it is either picking up an
ATSC, QAM, or NTSC signal. ATSC and QAM are already encoded MPEG-TS
streams, I believe. NTSC would still need encoded using your CPU.
