Thanks hdtvfan2005, I've came across that page before and wasn't sure if it's out in the market yet; the new hospital won't be in operation for a little over a year so there's time to do more research.
mikepier, I could let them continue to use the raw TWC feed, but the HD channels will only be limited to local channels "in the clear" and some HD cable channels not encrypted; this setup would be no different than a home HDTV directly connected to TWC.
With SMATV, there is a chance to feed popular "cable" channels in HD to any QAM HDTV in the hospital tied to the system. Of course, channels selection will be limited, but there is also control over content, so there would be less junk channels to scroll through. I'm wondering if that same system from PDISAT takes local channels OTA or satellite.
