Any advice on Pinnacle PCI PCTV HD card?

I bought one of these from Woot.com I'm thinking about a year ago, but never got around to running the Time Warner cable to the PC at the kitchen counter, so when I built the Vista Ult.x64 system, I had a PCI slot available, so I threw it in there. Vista seems to play nice with it, but I haven't plugged anything into it yet. I did get a cable TV splitter (Sort of a Y adaptor thingy) so that I can run the Time Warner cable into the modem and into the Pinnaclle card. Vista's auto update actually installed the correct driver, and NOT the CD, although the CD appeared to install the driver - it never changed in device manager from not being operational.

Is there anything else that I need to have/do/whatever.............?? I really have never used one of these, but I thought that since I'm watching it all on a 28" widescreen monitor, what the heck.... :drool: I can incorporate a little TV with my PC once in awhile......... :lol:
