beware that card above only handles clearcam, you may get the basic network channels but everything else will most likely be locked down, in some cases, cable providers appear to have locked even some network
I pull in OTA with a simple antenna here so all I do is just plug an antenna into the coax input.
I think there may be some new cable card ready cards and boxes out for PCs now that can bring in all channels from cable. Anything marked though, all those recordings will be lost if you ever change OS, go to a new PC, etc. though.
You can plug component-in into a HD PVR and the like and watch and permanently record anything off any cable channel although the video is analog capture so it's a touch more compressed and softer, but since most cable isn't all that sharp these days anyway due to not enough bits it is not much of a loss for many channels other than maybe premium but even premium cable channels have terrible IQ and audio compared to blu-ray where is where it is at for that stuff. It retains full original digital sound. It can be little finicky about lost signal during recording and it uses up a ton more PC CPU resources than one of the digital tuner cards though too.
