    I just received my beta version of Vista and I am wondering what hardware is
    currently available that will allow me to capture my HD signal (either DVI or
    Compsote) from my HD Cable Box. Price is not a major factor. I'd like to
    get the best quality.

    I believe you mean DVI or component(not composite since that is 480i
    resolution only)
    In any case there are no hardware add on cards for Vista, or XP for that
    matter, that can handle the bandwidth required to accept decoded 720p or
    1080i resolutions into a PC over DVI or component from a STB.

    When Vista is released you will be able to get a system that has Cable Card
    support from the major OEMs which will solve your problem and eliminate the
    requirement for you to have a separate HD cable box.

    Are you talking about the ATI OCUR. I have been searching for info and
    cannot find any info about a release date or whether it will be available to
    the public and not just the OEM's

    Yes, ATI OCUR will be released in January when the Vista Retail from what I
    have read it will only be available with new systems purchased from
    authorized OEMS.
