It works just fine with cable, but the channels you'll be able to use with it
will vary depending on location. Here, it works for local HD channels and the
other streams (weather, news, etc.) sent by the locals, but everything else is
encrypted. Some people can pick up everything this way, while others get
nothing. It's dependent more on your cable company than on the card you use.
