HD Radio Tuner Card?

I'm trying to find an HD Radio tuner card for my pc to pick up all the local HD stations, but I am having a hard time finding any.

Yes, I realize that I could easily stream my local HD stations via the net, but that's not possible in my situation. I'm planning to build a carputer soon, and I my internet access while driving around will be very low bandwidth if I do go wireless broadband. So, it would make more sense to save my very expensive bandwidth for other more important things and instead just tap into the existing HD Radio broadcast through the air using an HD Radio tuner card, or something.

So, does anyone know of any device anywhere?

Thanks in advance for any help!

I have never heard of one myself. It is a relatively new technology with a relatively small userbase, so it might be awhile before that sort of thing is mainstream.

You could of course pull audio from an HD radio into the computer, but I assume you want to be able to change channels...
