I'm a long time cable customer ready to take advantange of ATT's bundle for $99. I think i'm rather sold on the service but i have some questions about the installation.

I have 2 TV's and 2 computers that i use to watch TV. Both computers have Haupppauge PCI TV cards. I'm not concerned with HD at all. I just want to be able to play the TV over the computer.

1. Will this work with these cards? I can't find any info on the net about it.

2. How will i change the stations on the computer? I turn it by the software on the computer now.

3. Is there anything else I need to know?
