HDTV decoding question with mythtv and cable card

Can I use the HD-3000 card with a cable card? Will it decode the signal from the cable company? How does that work? Can I record encrypted HD content on the myth box using the HD-3000? And when you play it back will the cable card in my tv decrypt it?

TIA

Nope. You can only receive unencryped cable with the HD-3000.

I was wondering about this also. So the card won't allow you to record the encryted signal...then when you play it back I was thinking (hoping) that the cable card in the tv would decode it...

So that is not possible?

Technically the HD-3000 can receive encrypted cable, but how would you get the data from the computer to the TV?
