True. I checked the Microtune site. But all the rest, beginning with
8-VSB demod and through to MPEG video and audio decoding, is done by one
chip, potentially, such as the ATI Xilleon 240.


Microtune also makes an ATSC-specific tuner, the MT-2131, also dual
conversion like this one, and a low-cost single conversion
DVB-T-specific tuner, the MT-2266.
