I have a tv tuner card thats a couple years old, well since they are phasing out the old analog cable channels with digital ones, my card is not picking them up anymore. Is there any way to get the digital ones without buying a new card?

If your card doesn't have an ATSC tuner, the answer is no.

If your card doesn't have an ATSC tuner, the answer is no.

If you have cable, you might be able to get a digital-to-analog converter box from your cable operator, but you're better off just buying a new tuner card.
