Default Re: tv tuner

I have a question about TV tuners...
I've been contemplating building a Multimedia/Entertainment PC for awhile now...one that will take the place of my DvD/Blu-Ray, DVR, Cable box, etc. Just as sort of a test, I bought a TV card for my home computer (Hauppauge WinTV-HVR-2250 Media Center Kit Dual TV Tuner) and no doubt, it works well. But I've noticed that it only receives channels 1-100 (or 99). Most HD channels are above this number. I figure this has something to do with not having a cable box. I've tried messing around with Windows Media but it doesn't look to be a software issue. I've heard of "cable cards" And what-not but I was under the impression that this is/was defunct technology. Anyway, bottom line...is there a way to get all channels w/o the use of a cable box? Am I missing something?
