Connecting From Coax to HDMI

I have a Hauppauge colossus tv tuner. I would like to connect my coaxial cable from the cable provider to this tuner. The tuner only has HDMI, Standard def composite and s-video composite connections. Is there an adapter or cable box that would enable me to do this without a huge expense?

Hauppauge Computer Works: Colossus Product description

It appears to not be a TV tuner. It is intended to allow a PC to be used as a digital video recorder.

the way to go may be getting an upgrade cable box from your provider. I have Comcast with a HD cable box and it has HDMI on it.
