[vdr] [Offtopic] US Television (near Washington D.C.)

I'm using VDR in Bellevue, WA - but only analog with a Hauppauge PVR-150 
card.

The limited FTA channels in DVB-S (Satellite dish) stopped me buying such a 
card.  Also DVB-T won't work as USA doesn't use that standard (ATSC). 
Neither will DVB-C as they don't use that either!

Hi!

I won't only watch TV, I planning to use my vdr to record. But what I am
asking me, could there most channels recieved digital via (DVB) or are
there only analog signals.

Regards

Marco
