Is there a Hi-Def PC tuner card that I can manually tune to either channel 3 or 4?

Until recently I was able to tune several hi-def channels from Xfinity using my "AVerMedia A188C PCIe Pure ATSC" card in my PC. Now Xfinity is scrambling the channels, so I got one of the Xfinity DTAs to unscramble them. But I am unable to tune my card to either channel 3 or 4 to obtain the output from the DTA. Is there a Hi-Def PC tuner card that I can manually tune to either channel 3 or 4 so it will work with the DTA?

As a Comcast/Xfinity customer, the card you want is the Ceton InfiniTV4/InfiniTV6 TV Tuner card (and a cablecard from Comcast). This removes the need for a set top box from Comcast. Otherwise, look for a TV Tuner card with either NTSC or ClearQAM tuners.

Thanks Wolf - I'll look into the TV Tuner card - any suggestions for something inexpensive? The DTA is only $1.99/month from Comcast. Not sure what they charge for their cablecard, but I'll check that too.

In my area. Comcast charges $2/month for the cablecard.
