SAMSUNG digital set top box help.

i have time warner digital cable.
i hate their scientific atlanta clunky, overheating, silver STBs.

on the other hand,
i LOVE samsung products.

i just noticed this.
http://samsung.com/Products/DigitalS...B_H260FXAA.asp

is this even the item i would need to get ALL the channels i would with time warner's cable box?

if not, what exactly does this product do?
i've read that this is their first box to have a channel limit that surpasses 125, so that's a good start.

No. That is an HD/SD ATSC receiver for OTA DTV. You need a CATV DVB receiver with a CableCard slot. Even with such as receiver you will lose VOD and PPV.

YMMV.
