Viewing HDPVR 630 on computer

Hi guys,

I've been scouring the forums, but haven't found a clear answer on this yet. Is there a capture card / external capture card that anyone knows of that will allow me to watch HD on my computer.

I can find a firewire port on this device and from what I've read it sounds like all I need is a catpure card not a tv tuner ? If anyone has done this or knows if it possible to input from the satellite receiver to the computer that would be great.

Thanks in advance!

there are no firewire ports on the 630 or any of the Shaw Satellite units that I am aware of (only USB) that will not work with anything for the use you described.
