If this will affect cable cards why wouldn't Tivo be impacted? That makes no sense.

I called Verizon and the support personnel were naturally not able to provide a sufficient level of technical detail to determine what would happen.
They did know that ATi tuners exist and were able to tell me that:
- I may loose my ability to tune channels above 49 (making it effectively useless) and I should wait until "on or after September 15" to see what happens
- this is an FCC-mandated "upgrade"
- I would be offered a set-top box instead (yuck)
- TiVo with CableCARD should not be impacted, but I have to contact TiVo to make sure (I don't have a TiVo, just figured I'd ask)
Anyone have more information or insight concerning this "upgrade" that could completely kill my current bliss?
