ATSC workaround for Canadians for Windows 7/Media Center TV Pack for Vista

Building upon the success of his previous workaround for ATSC reception in Windows 7/Media Center TV Pack for Vista for those in Canada, former Microsoft MVP Peter Near has come up with a new workaround that allows ATSC reception using any compatible/supported ATSC tv tuner (recall that the last workaround required you to have the HDHomerun ATSC tv tuner).

For more information, check out Peter's latest blog entry, ATSC in Canada for Windows 7 (works with all ATSC tuners).

Great work Peter, and this does reinforce the fact that it is NOT a technical limitation as to why Microsoft is NOT providing this functionality in either the Windows 7 beta releases or Media Center TV Pack for Vista.
