According to the local cable provider, we could get 37 TV channels. Which means that the new chip by Toshiba, which can record upto 48 MPEG2 streams in parallel could easily record all of the TV available to us.
Maybe I should get a PVR based on that, so that it can watch all the TV for us. A bit in the vein of Douglas Adam's Electronic Monk (from Dirk Gently's Holistic Detective Agency)! And not just a few channels, no, everything that's on TV.
