Same here, although I only live approximately 40-60 miles away from 
Steve....  Although I have as many as 4 or 5 channels per mux, in some 
(rare) cases.... Of course, those channels are SD channels.... For the 
1080i channels, only 2 maximum.

...and Mac, I told you so many times about how great the HDTV 1080i 
streams look on my machine using the lgdt330x module under Time Warner 
Digital Cable QAM256!  It is unbelievably beautiful!

I have a wierd issue, however, with DViCO's windows software.  Sometimes 
Fox 5 (WNYW_DT) shows up, and other times it does not.  Some times, 
choosing WNYW_DT, only gives me WWOR ... yuck!

WNYW_DT is the ONLY channel that I record, so windows sucks.

Linux rules!

/me still wonders why FusionHDTV5 Lite TS stream is steadier than 
FusionHDTV5 Gold, considering that bt8xx dvb is a hack, and cx88 dvb is 
by design.  Hmmmm.... :-/

Under mythtv, there is no difference..... I feel it when testing with 
mplayer....
