As indicated in several other responses the 2009 analog to digital conversion is mandatory for OTA only.
When/If your cable company is going more or all digital is up to them. There have been posts where people have been told their cable company is going all digital as soon as 2007.
If your cable company went all digital or scrambled their analog signals the Series 2 DT would work with the cable box as a single tuner DVR. Given the DTs low cost I wouldn't worry much about it, if your cable company changes something a few years down the road you can deal with it then.
