A Comcast guy told me to go ahead and buy a DVI cable... It would give ALL of my channels better PQ. I've got a Comcast 6214 HDTV box and a Sammy DLP set.

I understand that channels 1-99 are analog...
I also understand that DVI-D cable is digital only.
So..... Does that mean that if I connect the box to the tv using DVI-D, that I will NOT be able to view channels 1-99?

I'm confused.

You will get all of your channels. I have the Motoroal STB from Comcast and use the DVI output to my Sanyo Z2. It is true that many of the channels are analog, but the Motorola coverts these to digital before output to the display device. I think the HD looks fantastic with this cable, and the analog channels are actually watchable, even at 100". I bought my cable from one of the sponsors for this site. Very satisfied.
