Question Advice on new HTPC build

Hello folks,
Im looking to (finally) get a 1080p LCD TV, probably in the 40 42 variety. To support this Im also thinking of building an HTPC, but Im not sure I understand everything. To put it simply: can I take my cable directly from the wall into an HTPC? Im not interested in a PVR but basically replacing a receiver with an HTPC. So from the HTPC I will output to the TV and speakers. Will this work? And work well? Or are TV tuner cards just generally pretty sucky?

Many thanks for the help.
