1950 and HD-PVR can work w/ output from cable box. I used a 950 for over
the air only.
That said, the picture will be on channel 3 only for the 950. You will
have to change the tuner(box) to change the channel. There are some
patches for the 1950/PVR(1212) that are available to get the IR
transmitter working. I don't know the status w/ Ubuntu. The developer
made the patches for Fedora and I think it might be in the (pending) F12
I would try to get the 950 working over the air first and then connect
to the cable box. It could work.
