But after doing some research on Wikipedia and such, I can't figure
out why a DVB-T unit can't be easily modified to recieve DVB-C?
They use the same frequencies, the DVB-T specs support QAM (atleast low QAM).
My specific cable network uses 64QAM which the specs apparently
supports... So where is the underlying problem?

Could somebody be so nice as to explain to me? :)

I would put money on it that most cable channels are encrypted. My WinTV-Nova T devices can't handle the encrypted channels on DVB-T so it probably can't handle DVB-C either.
