Reader and listener Big Sam writes in and asks: Am I clear that WMCE does not support QAM (and probably will not until
Vista)? Are there any hacks or workarounds? I want to stream it to my Xbox 360. Does that new dual
tuner TiVo support QAM? Thanks.
Sam's problem is that despite our help OTA doesn't work well for him, but he does have access to QAM programming via his local cable company. Normally this wouldn't be a problem but even though QAM is supported by his capture card he still can't record and stream HD to his Xbox 360. Yes Sam the new Series3 TiVo supports QAM and OTA channels.
Unfortunately I have bad news, there is no good solution until Microsoft decides to support QAM in MCE. There are two work around neither are very elegant.
