    I currently have cable TV via Cox. I have an HD DVR Converter box which enables me to see high def and non high def programs. I don't have any premium movie channels.

    I would like to buy the EyeTV for my Macbook but am unclear on something. I have tried researching this on their forums without luck.

    If I connect the EyeTV250 directly to the coax cable, completely bypassing my existing converter box, will I be able to receive all of the stations I currently receive when viewing TV normally. Specifically, will I be able to view the HD channels?

    Thanks !

    Ask your cable company if they broadcast ANY channels using Clear QAM, (sometimes called unencrypted digital) and you will have your answer.

    I worked for Cox many years ago and my feeling is they don't do Clear QAM.
