If you're cable subscription requires a set top box, then you should skip the Hauppauge 2250 and go for a cablecard solution. Cablecard solutions work almost exactly like a set top box you'd get from your cable company. You lease the card from the cable company and install it into the cablecard device. Then it's just a matter of connecting it to your PC/home network (external device) or installing it into your PC (internal device) and attaching the coax cable from wall socket. The set top box is no longer required.
I have the Ceton InfiniTV4 PCI-E card installed in my HTPC, so if you have further questions, I'd be happy to assist.
