I am getting comcast HD cable today. I want to turn my laptop into a dvr and do not care if it is only SD. Can I plug the coax cable into this tuner to record SD signals? Will this get me all the channels the same as if I just plug the coax into my tv that is not HD?
yes you will get all the basic channels that they offer. you however may not get the other channels that you would get with a box due to the fact that the cable system you live in may not be compatible with media center, apple tv,ect. but definitely you should the basics. either 2-29 give or take a few channels or 2-99 give or take a few channels. if your in a good area.
sincerely, cable guy
