I am interested in recording freeview onto harddisk. I can not however find a digital card with hardware encoding. This has lead me to think that perhaps no encoding is needed. Am I right in thinking that DVB-T is transmitted in MPEG2 anyway so once the card decodes the right channel, it can be a straight digital feed rather than the standard terestrial method of taking an analog signal and digitising it into MPEG2 to be able to save it ?? Has anyone got any experience of a DVB-T cards on an older processor (I have an Athalon 2800) for time-shifting live tv and recording programs ?
