I've done HTPC's but never really cared much for DVR and getting cable channels via PC.
I've got Charter cable TV and Internet.

When I look up tuners, I see things like ClearQAM, ASTC, NTSC, digital and analog...etc and I have no idea what it means or what fits my needs.

I already have a box from charter with the guide...etc in the living room, but I wanted to add cable capability to my htpc downstairs. What would I be looking for in order to get channels straight from the wall? Or is that not possible without another box from charter?

Also, any suggestions on cards? I'm not really picky for top quality visuals and stuff so cheaper the better. Thanks.
