Advertisements so i just read this whole thread. IIUC when comcast screws me completes the digital migration in my area, my 'box' input of my Series 2 Dual Tuner (S2DT) which is currently connected to a STB (Set Top Box) will be fine. But my 'cable' input, which gets the cable wire directly from the wall to the tivo (well, thru a splitter) ,and which currently records ch 2-99 using the tuner inside the tivo (no ir blaster nor serial cable) will only record ch 2-28 (or so). The tivo site calls this "retain dual tuner capabilities" but they dont say "recording 1/3 as many channels as before". That seems misleading to me. I OFTEN am recording one channel 29-500 and viewing another 29-99, or recording two channels, one 29-500 and one 29-99. So for the most part, my Dual Tuner is becoming a Single Tuner. Many people/posters have said that, and those ppl seem honest to me. so... here's an idea. I figured if this exists, the ppl here are likely to know abt it. Couldnt there be a box that takes the cable from the wall as input, with digital only extended basic ch 28-99 and converts ALL those channels to analog and outputs them on another coax in analog form. Why do all the boxes 'tune' a single digital channel and output only that channel Why can't it tune ALL of them and output them all. Cuz then i could just plug that right into my 'cable' input of my S2DT and i'd be happy. does such a thing exist? could it?
