Sorry, but this is not true. The ATI chip does both.

I cannot find any information about availability of the LG Chipset to 
other manufacturers. IF they are making it available, they are not 
making it easy for prospective customers to buy it. They ARE 
including a QAM cable tuner in the stand alone HDTV receivers they 
are currently shipping, presumably with 4th generation chips. 
Supporting QAM is a no brainer - the cable tuner is the easy part.
