    Greetings all,

    I am in the process of picking out a new Dell desktop system and want to be able to record HD content from cable/satellite and play to both my monitor and my Sony 52" LCD. I would also like to output the recorded HD content to either or both DVD or Blu-Ray for archival purposes.

    If I understand it correctly, the ATI WonderCard 650 supports a Cable Card (TM) which permits one to record the protected content from premium channels one has purchased to the system drive and send it to a monitor through a copy-protection enabled video card.

    My question(s):

    Will AnyDVD HD allow me to eliminate the copy protection and avoid the need for the copy-protection compliant video card?

    Will AnyDVD HD allow my to eliminate the copy protection and output the content to DVD and/or BD?

    Will an emulator such as Daemon Tools be needed?

    Any assistance will be appreciated. TIA.

    Jim
