    I wouldn't suggest waiting.

    Rumor is that a few select markets in the New England states will get the software rollout this year and other Comcast markets will be rolled out in early 2008.

    And, of course, that covers only Motorola markets since the Scientific Atlanta version of the software is supposed to come after the Motorola version is released.

    Can someone who has Comcast HD tell me what the quality of their HD broadcast is? I currently have D-Tivo, but the only thing I get in HD is the OTA stuff. How good is Comcast HD?

    In my market, the Comcast feed is significantly better than DTV for comparable channels.

    I've just switched from Direct TV to Comcast and the HD is very good. Like others here I'm waiting for the Comcast/TiVo box but no one I spoke to at Comcast could give me an answer. The Comcast DVR isn't horrible, but it doesn't remember what shows you've just recorded and keeps wanting to record the same episodes of shows if they repeat during the week even though you set it to record only first run shows. Since cable channels often repeat the same show several times a week, you have to delete recordings almost every day.

    This has probably been mentioned before, but I just noticed for the first time that there is actually content on that link now. It also leads to a page that lets you search to see if it is available in your zip code. It lets you put in your email address to be notified about when it is.

    I assume that there's no news about when this might be rolled out nationwide?

    Given how critical folks have been of the delays associated with the roll-out here in New England, I think they'd have to be idiots to provide the general public with any date-projections for subsequent roll-outs. In a nutshell, I think we've seen clear indications of why the cable companies are best-off saying absolutely nothing about when something is coming until they're absolutely sure that it is already there.
