    New digital to analog converter box

    with the new digital to analog converter boxes, is it going to be possible to use that with my pvr-350? It would be awesome if it was!

    You should be able to input the analog output of the D/A boxes to your 350's analog inputs (using an IR blaster to change channels). But if everything is going digital you won't be able to directly tune the stations from directly from the coax..

    Are there any cards that will decode digital over-the-air signals?

    There are lots of IR blaster out there. I don't use one, but if you look at the mythwiki you'll find pointers to ones others use: http://www.mythtv.org/wiki/index.php...er_with_MythTV. There is more info out there, but this is a good starting point, as is:

    Myth can control the IR blaster, so it will change the channels for you when you are watching live tv and change the station or when you schedule recordings.

    Many. For North America here is a short list:

    Air2PC .02 or some revision of it
    Kworld ATSC 110 or 115
    Avermedia A180
    Dvico Fusion 5
    Pchdtv 3000 or 5500
    HDHomerun

    and more... http://www.linuxtv.org/wiki/index.php/ATSC_Devices

    You'll want ones that do ATSC 8VSB for digital OTA.

    Awesome thanks!

    Also I'm using the Ati HDTV card and it works pretty well once I did the setup on the mythtv setup page.
