I've not considered it, but I would go that route before renting a STB, but I'm in no rush, I'm happy to wait for the 6 tuner, assuming it's still in the works, otherwise, then Yeah, I may look in to using a quam tuner, but in my area Comcast uses those Digital adapters, I'd only get 5 or 6 channels NBC, ABC, FOX, CBS, PBS, a church channel or two, you know the one with the lady wearing the pink wig, which is complete crap, I know cobb county Georgia was the first to go live in the state back in 2008 or 9 I believe, before that, you could get all your basic cable channels and then some with out a box, which is one reason why I have a ceton, it makes no sense for a consumer to have to rent all these devices just to view a cable subscription, we should have the option to use our equipment, heck, they should also provide a second mcard as well, at no charge, since that's required to make my own tuners work, anyway, I digress.Edited by dbailey75 - 8/28/12 at 10:45am
