According to the last supervisor I talked to at WOW claims they encrypted too soon in Huntsville and are switching back(as they did). He also stated they are going completely digital and everyone will eventually need a DTA box. He stated everyone will get two DTAs free and additional boxes will be $2 a month. Only time will tell.
To date, has there been any information available about when WOW intends to do this switchover? It sounds like they're implying that you can't receive clear QAM signals without their STB. I wonder if this means they'll encrypt everything, with their 'free' STB unconditionally-decrypting the clear QAM stuff? That would make my HTPC tuner cards worthless for cable operation. Perhaps it's time to dump the cable and go with a combination of OTA and internet streaming.
Actually, I was considering the purchase of some sort of PVR. Removing the requirement for tuning NTSC signals would increase my options.
