Is anyone using a Comcast CableCard in an LCD or LED TV?
Due to the digital transition, my mom will be getting a DTA (Digital Transfer Adapter) to work with her old TV. I'd like to get her a new TV and thought one with a cablecard slot would be best (not have 2 remotes or the extra box). However, after some reading it seems that she would not have a channel guide (she doesn't have internet either) if she has a cablecard. Is this correct?
It also seems that QAM tuners will no longer work in Memphis when this occurs thus the requirement for a cablecard or set-top box to decrypt channels. The DTA as I understand it will decrypt SD versions of the channels.
Her complex provides free basic/extended cable so she can't rent a HD set-top box from Comcast (she nor I has a comcast account) but according to a lady at comcast, she can get a DTA or cablecard for free.
