Hey everyone new here so just wanted to say hi and thanks for any help in advance.
Anyway so here is my question and I am pretty sure the answer is no from my research but I am hoping someone can help me out with this.

Ok so I finally have a new monitor worth upgrading my cable to HD for (Gateway FHD2400, btw, love the monitor worth every penny). So I am planning on upgrading to hd soon but here is what I would like to do. I really love Vista media center, I think it is the best program out there with the possible exception of a tivo box and I really don't want to give it up. but as far as I know there is no way to get a cable card reader for Vista (somthing like this http://ati.amd.com/products/tvwonderdigital/index.html ). So is there anyway I can get hd recording service on my computer without having to pay that studpid $20 bucks a month to record with a crappy box?
