Still no Blast speed increase in Eagan. Every day since the announcement I've power-cycled my modem. Seeing around 100mbps down, same as pre-announcement.

Going back to the Comcast change over to MPEG4, it was confirmed they did a down rez from 1080i to 720p on all 1080i channels except for the locals. I am totally disappointed in Comcast for doing this and especially for doing it without letting any of us know.

Yeah, I'm planning on getting my antenna set up in the attic this weekend. It's unacceptable for the prices they charge.

There are at least two cable channels that are still 1080i. NBCSN and the Weather Channel. Funny, they're both owned by Comcast/NBCUniversal. I'm not implying that all the channels they own are still 1080i because that's not the case. Why these two left overs?

This recent change gives me even more interest in checking out CenturyLink Prism TV when they light up the fiber that they recently strung in my alley.

Note they are not down-rezzing the locals so you won't really gain anything there, but you should save some case(I say some because if your getting internet from Comcast you may not save all that much) but in addition to the main locals you'll get tons of sub channels that Comcast doesn't bother carrying. Last scan I got almost 60 channels and after you subtract the religious and infomercial channels I still get ~30 channels I'd care to watch, not too bad for free
