Do they make TV capture cards that can record HD straight from the coax cable?

    I guess the software would need to be able to decode the HD signal

    plenty on ebay, just search qam tuner atsc tuner

    keep in mind that this will only be able to grab clearqam (unencrypted) channels. to grab encrypted channels, you'll have to wait till they make a decent affordable cablecard tuner card
    or get a firewire capture card and hook it into your cablebox (pending it has firewire out and you know what your doing)
