Android App That can use a Wifi Cable Card
Why doesn't someone build an app so someone can watch live TV through a wifi cable card tuner such as a HDHomeRun tunner (Amazon.com: SiliconDust HDHR3-CC HDHomeRun PRIME CableCARD TV tuners: Electronics).
Does anyone know if something like this exists? If know I bet it would sell like hot cakes!

Probably because it's designed as a front end to Windows Media Center, and very few phones (if any) could run a Java equivalent of that. Maybe someone could come out with a box that converts a QAM signal into a web page. That would be a lot more doable.

There are devices like Slingbox and Vulkano which will connect to a cable or satellite box, enabling you to watch and control TV remotely. Both have Android apps for viewing TV, along with PC apps for viewing on a laptop.
