I may need to pick this up. I find myself always needing an extra tuner as my HD homerun Prime only has three. It would also reduce network traffic given the tuner would be in my HTPC. I wonder if the two would play nicely together?

No, Canada isn't OTA only; the cable companies, Bell Canada, and several satellite companies provide HD content. What you can get varies from area to area.

 

Unlike the US, Canada doesn't have a law that forces providers to offer a way for customers to get unscrambled signals; the cable companies can, and do, force customers to use their proprietary Set Top Boxes to receive scrambled channels. You can get essentially the same Cisco STB from Rogers and Shaw (cable companies) but the boxes are not interchangeable: i.e. a Rogers box won't work on the Shaw network.

 

I'm assuming that this Ceton card works with one of the US gov't mandated tuners to allow customers to receive scrambled channels without using the provider's STB.

Looks lick the FCC is planning on letting the cable companies encrypted all channels, at lest its up for debate, google it or check dmz podcast #158.

 

Also the stb isn't required

 

Darn phone, I'm lucky I don't require a stb and I don't have copy once on anything I watch here in Las vegas
