So I got one of those spam mailings from Comcast today letting me know they are converting channels 35+ to digital (2-34 unaffected). So I quckly jump to their FAQ online and well...
31. Will I need equipment if I have a digital TV with a QAM tuner?
At the completion of the project, customers will need equipment on all TVs to receive any channels above the Limited Basic level of service—of course, this is now the case with most video providers, including our satellite and phone competitors. We’re encouraging all customers to install and use the equipment provided by Comcast or that they might purchase from their electronics retailer, like a TIVO or cable card enabled devices, to avoid any service interruptions.
If this plays out as they say it will, my HDHomerun is going to be practically worthless (lets hope not)
So, does anyone know of another option in the California SF bay area or should I start saving for some usb-irt's and box's?
Also FYI for anyone else with Comcast for possible things to come.
