Again, I don't think there is any capture device that supports CableCard
You would have to use the cable operator supplied STB and then capture
the composite, s-video or RF output with any Myth-compatible capture
device, as SD only.
If you want HD the only way to do this at present (for reasonable cost)
would be by firewire, if you have a STB capable of that.
Basically what you are wanting to do is precisely what the
powers-that-be do not want you to be able to do: get HD programming into
a useful form.
