No idea what I'm looking for.

I'm in the process of building a HTPC and am looking for a TV Tuner card that will let me control my cable through Media Portal and the more I look into it the more confused I get.

I'm in Canada and have Sask-tel Max as my cable provider. As far as I know it's an IPTV service. The cable box I have is a Motorola VIP1200.

I've been looking at so many types of TV Tuner cards and terms that I don't think I could even make a logical decision anymore. I need something that would be allow Media Portal to pull channels and let me change the channel and whatnot from within the program on my HTPC. I would love some help with this as I don't want to buy something that won't work.

I'd be happy to provide more information if needed.

  1. So I looked on the back of my set top box and there is an S-video port and I was reading something online about using an S-video port and something called IR blasting.... would that work?

    edt: would this work?
