Re: HD from PC?
said by onebadmofo:In a word, no. Your provider is no longer using an analogue signal and has switched to all digital. The device is a Digital Transport Adapter that switches the digital signal to something readable in analogue. The DTA is serialed and linked to your account, allowing only the signals you pay for to be seen by you.
I recently downgraded my cable service to basic. They gave me a small "box" shown above (not mine..found image on Google). Well I'm trying to figure out if I can get an HD signal from this by connecting it to my TV Tuner card on my PC and then running that to my TV via hdmi cable.
Would this work?
No regular QAM tuner will read the signal the DTA puts out. If, for some reason, your provider still carries analogue signals, then a QAM tuner will allow you to see them, but given that you have a DTA box, it usually means that there are none and your are basically pooched.
