I'm looking for a way to watch HDTV on my PC using my cable box's firewire port.

The software I currently have only lets me capture the .ts stream.

Sure, I can watch the .ts stream after it is captured, but I'd really love to watch it live on my PC.

I have the Motorola DCT6200/1000 box provided by Time Warner Cable (Houston, Texas).

It it possible to accomplish this? :confused:

I have:
1GB of DDR400 memory in dual paging mode (4 x 256MB).
Windows XP Home.
Intel Pentium IV 2.60GHz HT cpu.
One 80GB IDE Hard Drive (Operating system and programs) NTFS.
Two 80GB SATA Hard Drives (For Video Capture) NTFS.

Ditto! I would like to watch my comcast HDTV on my PC. I.e. I have my 47" HDTV plugged into my computer. I'd like to be able to watch TV in one window while surfing the web / e-mail / games / whatever in the other window.

Right now the only way I know how to surf the web and watch TV is to buy two tv's! Looks like cablecard is only for people who buy HP/Dells. I refuse to buy name-brand products.

I wouldn't mind buying some new hardware, I really would feel stupid having two HDTV's in my living room, it would be cool to do it all on one monitor.
