Wanting to use virgin i.e. cable RF input has more than one issue.

1. QAM demod and decode.

   Yes you can get cards that will do this.

2. Nagra decoding.

   Subscriber coding used by NTL and Telewest now Virgin. You are very
   unlikely to find a card that will support this and have the necessary
   card reader. This is very protected technology!
