ATI HDTV Wonder question

For those who currently use this card, maybe you could help me with
this question:

My TV has a built-in HDTV tuner, so even though I only subscribe to
analog cable, the TV still picks up many digital channels and 5
unscrambled HD local channels. Can I expect the ATI HDTV Wonder to do
the same, meaning picking up digital and HD channels from analog cable?

Also, is this card supported by Windows Media Center?

Many thanks,

I connected mine to my Warner cable couple of weeks ago and got nothing. OTA
uses 8VSB modulation and cable QAM, but I thought WTH. I'm getting
everything from the antenna that is available unscrambled from the cable in
my area anyway. Cards are available that do QAM. AVSFORUM.COM is a good
place to do research.
The HDTV Wonder can be use with Media Center but if you don't have a
separate card with a hardware encoder you have to use something called Kram
Drivers. I'm still using XP. Probably would be a good idea to check whether
MCE can be use with a QAM card.

No. The hardware supports QAM but the software and drivers do not.

Yes, but only one to a machine.

You'd be better off with a Dvico Fusion 5 Gold for about the same price. It
also has a better tuner.
