I have Premiere & an older Series 3 (OLED) HD TiVos. I recently got another Premiere that will essentially replace the Series 3 in living room. Since it has a lifetime plan, I plan to then just put the Series 3 in the basement. It will still be hard wired to my home network so I'll have MRV access to shows on it from the two Premiers on the main floor.
However, Since Comcast charges $8 for more cable cards, I don't plan to get cable cards for this older Series 3 and just hooking the coax cable right to it. This basic hookup will essentially just get me local channels only on this Series 3 (I'm in a Comcast area that has done the digital transition). My Sony HDTV can get local HD channels with the direct coaxial connections. They are channels like ch4-1, 5-1, 11-1, etc.
I realize I will have to go through the setup process again, but can my Series 3 get these HD channels as well (with just a simple direct coax connection)? Or will it really just get the analog version of the local channels?
