Help with Media Center & HDTV cable service

Stats:
Running Win 7 Pro
Using Cox Digital Cable
Athlon II X4 620
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT Dual DVI (HD via adapter)
OnBoard Via High Def Audio
Hauppaguge Win TV HVR-1250 (Model 22xxx, Hybrid ATSC/QAM)

Can someone please direct me to a site or tutorial for merging Media Center with digital cable HDTV service. Didn't find anything on this in 7Forums tutorials ?

Mostly...what is the order of attaching systems/cables...etc...after you set up the HDTV receivers/DVR Recorders, etc...from the inbound existing coaxial cable...do you simple re do the order of cables...switching my current direct coaxial input into my tuner card from direct connection to the relay from the HDTV cable receiver ?

Does everything otherwise then stay the same ?

Thanks for any input or links on this !!

Thanks..TR
