    Well that will suck if I have to pay for the HD box still even though it's completely unnecessary. Hopefully there's some work-around for this. Anyone else have experience with it?

    Untortunately, the 1st level of support at many of these companies can be extremely poor at times.

    A couple of weeks ago, I was first told by a tier 1 AT&T's U-Verse support agent that I had to pay the HD fee twice to get more than one HD stream at a time. After being on hold for a while she admitted she was wrong and apologized. It boggles the mind how some agents can be so incompetent. When you know you are right, be firm but polite.

    So are you paying for the Comcast HD box even though you aren't using it, just to get access to the non-local HD channels? Or did they find a work-around?

    ok long story short, as of this moment there is no SDV enabled by Comcast in New Jersey. In about four to six months, that may be changing as more HD channels are brought into the lineup, world of more is introduced, new GUI are rolled out onto the cable boxes, and channels are brought into the mix. You can find more information on DSLreports.com, alot more information.

    I'm in the same boat your in. I have as you can see in my sig a TiVo and Moxi both using cable cards. This really is all you need dude. Once you get it installed, your rock solid good to go. Even if your area starts using switched digital, you might not even need the SDV adapter if the channels that are using it aren't ones you watch. The first cablecard on your account should be free, the other as little as 2 dollars.
