I'm not so sure. According to a flier I got from Direct TV, cable(I know it's not specifically Comcast but...) has lost 1,306,000 subscribers. If they want me to pay to rent more boxes to get what I'm currently getting, I'll be thinking real hard about switching services.

Just think of the DTAs as allowing you to keep your channels accessed by "(analog)cable-ready" TVs - nothing more.
But today, without a box, I'm able to get the analogs thru my NTSC tuner and the HD Locals thru my QAM tuner, all with the coax running to my only Ant/Cable input. With this new DTA my only coax input is used up getting the SD digitals converted to analog. I end up losing my HD channels unless this thing has pass-thru capability.
