Okay, I preordered my S3 and went to ask Charter Cable for cable cards. The guy I chatted with was helpful and said that my area was cable card ready and so I was able to order it. I was fine with the whole installation thing, but he then comes back and said that I was not able to get one because he talked about upconverting. It was either the cablebox or the cable cards was what he basically said. Our household has 3 cableboxes (1 with digital cable and 2 with basic). Have any of you heard about me not being able to get cable card and that it is one or the other? I've never heard of it before. He said that he was going to check into it some more, but I cannot believe that I have to choose their box or live without the S3 that I have been anticipating for such a long time.
