The pcHDTV-3000 card that EFF is recommending is apparently
antenna-reception only. Should be able to get hdtv
reception here at the appartment, at least according to the
website they refer us to.
But for cable, it looks like I need the Air2PC card, and it
looks like they are back-ordered till April, tho the pcHDTV
cards are still available (by mail order). So I won't be
ready to do HDTV till then, but I'm happy to host the
build-in anyway, just to get the base system together and
capable of recording analog.
So let's schedule an initial build-in for folks who have
their hardware together or want to set up the base system
and another for May.
Does Sat. 13 March at 10 AM work for people? Who'd be
coming? I'm near Webster St in Alameda.
I'll do another one once my Air2PC card comes in.
