This is pretty much useless in Canada, if analog TV is being disconnected in August. As almost all of Canadian cable/satellite providers encrypt their digital TV.

I use SageTV with placeshifter to do all this on my Hauppauge TV Tuner.

My Hauppauge tuner also has an IR Blaster, which is supposed to allow me to control a digital tuner with Sage as well. If analog TV is disappearing this summer, then I'll have to try the blaster on my Rogers box.

It should work. Well the IR blaster anyways. I use an Hauppauge HD PVR w/ SageTV & SageTV Client and it works flawlessly w/ the IR blaster.

Good to know. My tuner only has coax connectors I think (Hauppauge 2250) unless there is an adapter or something in the box. I might have to change the card to something like you have to get a digital signal?
