Here's my understanding after some more research between yesterday and today:
Digital cable still uses the same analog cable channel frequency slots, but it packs in several digitally encoded channels per slot. My system actually still has 70 analog channels that can be viewed without a cable box (split between two physical cables) and then maybe another 100 or so digital channels.
So, my new question is, can I get a modulator that will modulate to a channel that is high enough to be above the last used channel or even use the UHF band as an alternate? I really don't want to loose any of the digital channels since I am subscribed to the premium service and get them all (movies, movies, and more movies!!!!).
I'm also wondering if it may help that I have an old A/B cable system. My assumption is that the cable company would be using a much smaller range on each one and I could more easily get above the channels used by them.
