Ok. Too bad. Then why are DVB-T units, that needs more technology, half the price of DVB-C units... Annoys me... :)
That's probably down to economies of scale. Most people who have cable will have been supplied with a receiver box by their cable company, so buying a PCI/USB card for the computer will be an addtional option for most cable users, that the majority don't want/need. Where as for DVB-T you pick your own equipment at the shop, so you may well go for the PCI/USB adapter as the first option.
