I would like to see cable companies eliminate all analog service including limited basic and also stop carrying SD digital versions of HD channels. There should be only one copy of each channel, the HD one (except in the west when only the east feed is available in HD). I don't understand why cable companies use SD boxes that are not capable of downrezzing 11080i or 720p to 480i. OTA converter boxes do, as do DVD recorders and SD digital tvs. The HD channels should be carried in clear QAM.
How can we say "the digital transition is complete" when thousands of low power stations are still broadcasting in analog?
LOW POWER ANALOG NEEDS TO DIE NOW!!! And now the deadline has been extended again!
