The answer to this questions is probably no, but I'll ask anyway. I have comcast internet and also subscribe to their basic cable package because the internet connection is cheaper with it. However, I also have D* with the HD package so I can watch the NFL regular season in HD. However, I really want to be able to tune in my local channels in HD. I know D* will eventually get around to updating all their equipment to broadcast HD locals in our market, but who wants to wait for that. So my question is, with all the talk of getting the Comcast HD channels, would it be possible to connect the Comcast feed to my antenna feed on the HD D* box and receive the local channels that way?
If nobody has tried it I'm willing but I do have to ask, is there any risk to the hardware? (I'm not thinking so, but just want to make sure).
